How to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important part in the resultant picture and are very crucial. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors and with the best of light.
I've often seen that pictures that win competitions 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 the trees or windows, complex long shadows and also the result of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. An amazing effect is lent by specific angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to exploit these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the wee hours of late afternoon, the morning while dawn and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you may guarantee yourself profitable results.
