How to Create 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 certain parameters to be able to get the top of the nature while one is into landscape photography. These parameters are extremely vital and play an important part in the resulting picture. Besides backgrounds and colours, both of which I have already discussed, lights also play a crucial part in photography. And one must always remember that landscape photography looks best when one uses the best of colours and with the greatest of light.
I have frequently seen that pictures that win competitions are often the ones which make fascinating usage of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows as well as the result of side and backlighting. Specific angles of light add an incredible effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer will be to tap these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle potential. Believe it or not, even a plain tree shot in a dazzling light and angle can appear divine. Use light to define your photographs.

Lighting effects in landscape pictures are critical not only because they bring in a sense of brightness, but also, because dramatic lighting can bring out the best in a landscape. The angle of light rays flashing through windows, a sliver of golden light shining up the sand, bouncing off the sea or creeping upon mountain faces! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, don't miss the early hours of the morning while sunrise, late day and the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically enhanced. Literally! So all you landscape photographers who are searching for amazing landscape photographs, take that extra step towards it t use the power of light and you'll be able to ensure yourself profitable results.
