A lot of landscape photographers overlook the potential of woodland photography, often opting for grander and more arresting views elsewhere. But there are numerous fantastic photo opportunities to be found in the forest, and this fantastic video tutorial details seven great tips to improve your woodland compositions.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this excellent video tutorial discusses seven helpful tips for improving the composition of woodland photos. Composition is a particularly tricky aspect of woodland photography. Forests can be very busy and dense, and it can be tricky to find a clean look without distractions due to the high number of elements in the frame, especially since these elements are often irregular and hard to organize in a neat fashion. That being said, when you do find a good composition, the combination of the soft, ethereal light that often filters through a forest and the way it interacts with the wide variety of foliage and the like can highlight the complex and intricate geometry and patterns that permeate the area. And now, since it is fall, it is a great time to head into the woods with your camera and get some shots. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
