How to Create 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 to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an important part in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colours and with the very best of light.
I've commonly 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, complex long shadows and the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, sparkling light. Certain angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is always to harness on these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can appear celestial. Use light to define your photographs.
