Forest Photography tips – finding compositions

Forests are wonderful places to capture great images but it’s a source of frustration for many photographers. In this video, I show some simple techniques using your camera’s live view to identify good compositions in the forest.

    did you edit these photos post-capture or are they untouched? I’m wondering
    as the photos look much warmer in colour than the video footage does. also,
    would you happen to remember what settings you were using? great video!!

    I find your videos quite inspiring. Could you maybe show in a video how to
    get the colours right. Because as seen in the video the colours differ very
    much between the real world, live view and the final image. That would be
    great. Keep it up!

    Thanks you!!! I’ve been studying photography on my own for a few months now
    and i was frustrated with trying to shoot in many of the local parks here
    which are all mostly wooded. This video was just what i needed to inspire
    and keep me practicing skills. Thanks!!

    this video. Would like to see further videos on the same subject.
