How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely vital and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the very best of light and that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've often seen that photos 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 clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows and also the impact of backlighting and side. Specific angles of light bring an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to exploit on these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can look divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital 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.
Needless to say, don't miss the wee hours of late day the morning while dawn and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may guarantee yourself fruitful results.
