The way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the top of the nature. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential part in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember with the very best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've commonly seen that photos that win contests are often the ones which make fascinating use 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 and also the result of side and backlighting. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to tap on these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you may ensure yourself fruitful results.
