The best way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters in order to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very vital and play an important part in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, each 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 colors and with the very best of light.
I have often seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are complex and the effect of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light bring an amazing effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to exploit on these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can look divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late afternoon and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you can ensure yourself profitable results.
