How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic 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 to be able to get the finest of the nature. These parameters are very crucial and play an essential part in the resultant picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always remember with the best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colours.
I've often 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 clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows along with the result of side and backlighting. An incredible effect is lent by specific angles of light 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 harness 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 brilliant light and angle can seem heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of late day, the morning while sunrise and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself fruitful results.
