How to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the finest of the nature. These parameters are very critical and play an essential part in the resultant picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors and with the best of light.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions are often the ones that make fascinating use 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 along with the result of side and backlighting. An extraordinary effect is lent by particular angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to tap on these angles. Be aware 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 seem celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical 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 golden light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the ocean or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late day and also the point 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 extraordinary landscape pictures, take that additional step towards it t use the power of light and you will ensure yourself profitable results.
