The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature. These parameters are very vital and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember with the best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colors.
I've frequently seen that pictures that win contests are frequently the ones that make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows along with the impact of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light lend an amazing effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to harness on these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can appear divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are crucial 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 gold 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, do not miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late afternoon and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved.
