How to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational 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 certain parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an important role in the resultant picture. Apart from colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the best of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours.
I have often seen that photos that win contests are frequently the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows and also the result of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. An incredible effect is lent by specific angles of light 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 harness on these angles. Be conscious to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a brilliant light can appear divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are vital not only because they bring in a feeling of luminosity, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light beams flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of late afternoon, the morning while sunrise and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you can guarantee yourself fruitful results.
