The way 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 specific parameters to be able to get the top of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are extremely vital. Aside from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colors and with the best of light.
I've frequently seen that photos that win contests in many cases are the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, long shadows that are elaborate as well as the result of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware 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 brilliant light can look divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a sense of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest 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 afternoon, the morning while sunrise and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you will guarantee yourself fruitful results.
