How to Create a Great Picture - Part 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Edge
It's about the eye for beauty I concur, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind specific parameters in order to get the very best of the nature. These parameters play an important role in the resultant picture and are extremely critical. Aside from colours and backgrounds, both of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential role in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colours and with the greatest of light.
I've often 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 and the result of side and backlighting through clouds, sparkling light. Particular angles of light lend an amazing effect to even a typical landscape; keep an eye for those sources. Use it to his advantage and the art of a landscape photographer would be to exploit these angles. Be conscious 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 seem heavenly. Use light to define your photos.

Lighting effects in landscape images are essential not only because they bring in a feeling 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 gold light creeping upon mountain faces, bouncing off the sea or shining up the sand! Lights bring out so much more to a photograph.
Of course, do not miss the early hours of the morning while dawn, late day and also the brink of sunset. 'Magic hours' as this is called- shots taken in this time gets magically improved. Literally!
