How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the best of the nature. These parameters play an essential part in the resulting picture and are extremely critical. Aside from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I have often seen that pictures that win competitions are often the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows along with the result of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. An amazing effect is lent by specific angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit on these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can appear divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, do not miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon and also the brink of sundown.
