The best way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the top of the nature. These parameters play an important role in the resultant picture and are very vital. Apart from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember with the very best of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win contests are often the ones which make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows along with the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. Certain angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to tap on these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can appear heavenly. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays 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.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of late day, the morning while sunrise and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you can ensure yourself profitable results.
