How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very vital and play an essential role in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I have often seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones which 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 along with the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can appear heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the wee hours of late day, the morning while sunrise and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
