The best way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important role in the resulting picture and are very crucial. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I have frequently seen that photographs that win competitions are frequently the ones which make fascinating usage 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 also the impact of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light bring an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to exploit these angles. Be conscious 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 look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are essential not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of late day the morning while dawn and the brink 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 photographs, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
