How to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Dramatic Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I concur, 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 important role in the resulting picture. Apart from colours and backgrounds, each of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography seems best when one uses the best of colours and with the very best of light.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions are often 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 certain angles of light to even a normal landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to harness these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in angle and a dazzling light can appear heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are critical not only because they bring in a sense 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 sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the wee hours of late day, the morning while dawn and also the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you will guarantee yourself fruitful results.
