How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the finest of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important role in the resultant picture and are very crucial. Apart from colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I've frequently seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are 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 result of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light add an incredible effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to harness 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 believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital 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 golden light bouncing off the sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of late afternoon, the morning while sunrise and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself profitable results.
