How to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the top of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential part in the resulting picture and are very critical. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors and with the finest of light.
I've frequently seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are complex along with the impact of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light lend an incredible 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 to exploit 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 pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are essential not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, 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 creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the ocean or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the wee hours of late day the morning while sunrise and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape pictures, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may guarantee yourself profitable results.
