The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters are very crucial and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Apart from colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember with the best of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours.
I have commonly seen that photographs that win contests are often the ones which make fascinating usage 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 complex and also the effect of side and backlighting. Certain angles of light add an amazing effect to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is to tap these angles. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can appear celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, 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.
Naturally, don't miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late day and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally!
