The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential role in the resultant picture and are extremely crucial. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colours.
I've often seen that pictures that win contests in many cases are the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. Particular angles of light add an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to exploit on these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the ocean, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of late day, the morning while dawn and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself profitable results.
