How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's 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 resulting picture and are extremely crucial. Besides backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I have commonly seen that photos that win contests 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, intricate long shadows along with the impact of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light bring an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is always to tap on these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best 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.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photographs, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you can ensure yourself profitable results.
