The best way to Make a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's all about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters play an essential part in the resultant picture and are very crucial. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential 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 best of colors.
I've commonly seen that photos that win competitions are frequently the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, intricate long shadows along with the impact of side and backlighting. An amazing effect is lent by specific angles of light to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to harness 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 appear heavenly. Use light to define your pictures.

Lighting effects in landscape images are critical not only because they bring in a sense 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 golden light bouncing off the sea creeping upon mountain faces or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the early hours of late afternoon the morning while sunrise and the point of sundown. 'Magic hours' as this is named- shots taken during this time gets magically improved. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are looking for incredible landscape photos, take that additional step towards it t harness the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself fruitful results.
