How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are extremely vital. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember with the finest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors.
I have commonly seen that pictures that win contests are often the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and the impact of side and backlighting. Particular angles of light lend an incredible effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to exploit on 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 a dazzling light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your photos.
