The best way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is all 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 finest of the nature. These parameters play an essential part in the resulting picture and are extremely critical. Aside 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 seems best when one uses the best of colours and with the finest of light.
I have often seen that photos that win competitions in many cases are the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows as well as the result of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light add an incredible effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to tap 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 a brilliant light and angle can appear divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are vital not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays 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.
Needless to say, don't miss the wee hours of late day the morning while sunrise and also the brink of sundown. '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 pictures, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may ensure yourself fruitful results.
