The way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very critical and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the finest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've commonly seen that pictures that win contests 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 impact of backlighting and side. Particular angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit 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 brilliant light and angle can appear celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, don't miss the early hours of late day, the morning while dawn and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photographs, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you may ensure yourself fruitful results.
