How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the top of the nature. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Aside from colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the greatest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colours.
I've often seen that pictures that win contests 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 clouds, sparkling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows as well as the result of backlighting and side. Specific angles of light lend an amazing effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit on 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 a brilliant light and angle can appear divine. Use light to define your pictures.
