The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters in order to get the top of the nature. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are extremely critical. Apart from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors and with the greatest of light.
I've often seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are 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, complex long shadows along with the result of backlighting and side. Specific angles of light bring 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 on these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can appear celestial. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are essential not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams 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.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and 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 amazing landscape pictures, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself profitable results.
