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 particular parameters to be able to get the finest of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very vital and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Aside from backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the best of light.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions in many cases are the ones that make fascinating usage 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 elaborate along with the impact of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by certain angles of light 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 conscious 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 heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams 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.
Needless to say, do not miss the wee hours of the morning while dawn, late afternoon 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 searching for extraordinary landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you will guarantee yourself profitable results.
