The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, 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 are extremely vital and play an important part in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember with the greatest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors.
I have often seen that pictures that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. Specific angles of light add an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to harness 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 dazzling light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your pictures.
