How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very critical and play an important role in the resulting picture. Aside from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography seems best when one uses the finest of colours and with the greatest of light.
I've 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, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows as well as the effect of side and backlighting. Particular angles of light lend an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is to tap these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining the sand up, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late day and also the brink 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 additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
