The way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters in order to get the very best of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters play an essential part in the resulting picture and are very vital. Aside from colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always remember with the very best of light and that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours.
I have commonly seen that photos 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 the trees or windows, elaborate long shadows and also the effect of side and backlighting through clouds, sparkling light. An incredible effect is lent by particular 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 is 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 dazzling light can seem divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape images are essential not only because they bring in a sense 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 bouncing off the sea, 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 wee hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and also the point of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for amazing landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
