The way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It is about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters in order to get the finest of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are very critical and play an important part in the resulting picture. Apart from backgrounds and colours, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography appears best when one uses the best of colours and with the finest of light.
I have frequently seen that photos that win contests in many cases are the ones which make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through the trees or windows, complex long shadows as well as the result of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. An incredible effect is lent by specific angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer will be to tap these angles. 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 dazzling light and angle can look heavenly. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are crucial not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because sensational lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining the sand up, bouncing off the ocean or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Naturally, do not miss the wee hours of late afternoon, the morning while sunrise and the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for extraordinary landscape photographs, take that additional step towards it t exploit the power of light and you may ensure yourself profitable results.
