The best way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the best of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very crucial and play an essential role in the resultant picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the best of light.
I've often seen that pictures that win competitions 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, elaborate long shadows as well as the impact of backlighting and side through clouds, dazzling light. An incredible effect is lent by certain angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can appear divine. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are essential not only because they bring in a sense 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 golden light bouncing off the sea creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for incredible landscape photographs, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you may guarantee yourself profitable results.
