How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters in order to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very vital and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, 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 looks best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I have commonly seen that photos 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, sparkling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are complex and also the impact of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light lend an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to tap these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can appear heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, 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 creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea 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 improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
