How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are extremely vital. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the finest of light.
I have commonly seen that pictures that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating use 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 and the effect of side and backlighting. Particular angles of light bring an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to harness on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can seem celestial. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of late afternoon, the morning while sunrise and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself profitable results.
