The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are extremely critical. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I have often seen that photographs that win contests in many cases are the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and the effect of side and backlighting. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

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 finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape photographs, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may guarantee yourself fruitful results.
