How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions are often the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows and the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. Specific angles of light add an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are essential not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining up the sand, bouncing off the ocean or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, do not miss the early hours of late day the morning while dawn and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you will guarantee yourself profitable results.
