How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the top of the nature. These parameters play an important part in the resulting picture and are extremely critical. Aside from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours.
I have frequently seen that photos that win competitions in many cases are the ones which make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows along with the result of backlighting and side. Specific angles of light lend an extraordinary 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 tap these angles. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can appear heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces 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 dawn, late day and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
