The way to Create a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is all about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind certain parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an important part in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an important part in photography. And one must always keep in mind with the finest of light and that landscape photography appears best when one uses the finest of colors.
I've commonly seen that photos that win contests in many cases are 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, complex long shadows as well as the impact of side and backlighting through clouds, dazzling light. Certain angles of light lend an amazing effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap on 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 believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can look celestial. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape graphics are vital 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 creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea 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 day the morning while sunrise and 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 extraordinary landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you may guarantee yourself fruitful results.
