The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational 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 resulting picture and are very vital. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors and with the very best of light.
I have frequently seen that photos that win competitions are often the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows along with the effect of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light bring an amazing effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful 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 divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because sensational 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.
Needless to say, don't miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
