The best way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the finest of the nature, while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely critical and play an essential part in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play a crucial role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colors and with the finest of light.
I have often seen that photographs that win competitions are frequently 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, intricate long shadows as well as the effect of backlighting and side through clouds, sparkling light. An amazing effect is lent by specific angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer is always to exploit on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be aware to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can appear celestial. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are essential not only because they bring in a feeling of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the finest in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of gold light bouncing off the ocean creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Needless to say, don't miss the early hours of late day the morning while sunrise and the brink of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically enhanced. Literally!
