    Key first steps to improving your forest photography

    3 first steps to improving your forest photography: plan your day

    Plan your day
    Early morning is great for shooting mist, dew and long shadows, midday for shooting wide-angle shots of the canopy, and the low angled light of evening for a warm glow, soft light, sunsets and silhouette photography.

     

    3 first steps to improving your forest photography: make best use of the light

    Make best use of the light
    Use direct sunlight early and late in the day for dramatic shadows and strong colours. Direct light is also great for backlighting foliage but avoid flare by framing the sun behind a tree. Take advantage of overcast light for lower contrast images with a full range of tones and saturated colours.

     

    3 first steps to improving your forest photography: add colour

    Add colour
    Look for woodland scenes with good colour combinations. Vibrant green foliage contrasts well with tree trunks and also looks amazing against a vivid blue sky when shooting the canopy. Woodland flowers provide a welcome splash of colour and can add a point of interest.
