The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an essential role in the resultant picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the very best of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colours.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions in many cases are the ones that make fascinating use of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and also the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. Particular angles of light lend an extraordinary effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to tap on these angles. Be mindful 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 appear divine. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are crucial not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the finest 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.
Needless to say, don't miss the wee hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also 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 searching for outstanding landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
