How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the very best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an important part in the resulting picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the greatest of light.
I have commonly seen that photographs that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows as well as the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. Specific angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can look divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the ocean or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you will ensure yourself fruitful results.
