The best way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely vital and play an essential part in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the very best of light.
I have frequently seen that pictures that win competitions are often the ones that make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and also the impact of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. Particular angles of light lend an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to exploit these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces 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 also the brink 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 photos, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you will ensure yourself profitable results.
