The best way to Create 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 specific parameters to be able to get the best of the nature. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are very critical. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors and with the greatest of light.
I have commonly seen that photos that win contests are frequently the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. Particular angles of light lend an extraordinary 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 exploit on these angles. 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 a dazzling light and angle can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, 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 sea, creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of late day the morning while dawn and also the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you can ensure yourself profitable results.
