The best way to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an important role in the resulting picture and are very vital. Apart from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always remember with the finest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colors.
I have often seen that photos that win competitions are often the ones which 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, elaborate long shadows as well as the effect of backlighting and side. An incredible effect is lent by specific angles of light to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can look celestial. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are crucial not only because they bring in a sense 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 creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape photos, take that extra step towards it t exploit the power of light and you'll be able to guarantee yourself fruitful results.
