How to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an important role in the resultant picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colours and with the greatest of light.
I've often seen that pictures that win competitions are often the ones that make fascinating usage 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 side and backlighting through clouds, sparkling light. An extraordinary effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware 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 look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late day and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you may guarantee yourself profitable results.
