The best way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an important role in the resulting picture. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors and with the very best of light.
I have commonly seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are the ones that 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, long shadows that are elaborate along with the impact of side and backlighting. Particular angles of light add an amazing effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can appear celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics 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 beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
