How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important role in the resulting picture and are very critical. Apart from 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 finest of colours and with the greatest of light.
I've commonly seen that pictures that win competitions in many cases are 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 intricate along with the impact of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because sensational 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 sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! 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 point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. 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 profitable results.
