How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are very critical. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I've frequently seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows as well as the result of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light add an extraordinary effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to harness on these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can seem divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while dawn and also the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for extraordinary landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you will guarantee yourself profitable results.
