Tips for Woodland Photography

Words like

  • Chaos,
  • Order,
  • and Woodland Photography

include a genre of landscape photography which can be very rewarding — if it’s done right.

And, shooting woodlands the right way is a continued journey but here I share a frosty morning, exploring and creating using one lens, my telephoto.

Just by keeping focused on the finer details, looking for shapes and patterns and positioning them in the frame to a pleasing conclusion helps get the most out of woodland photography.

I hope this photo tutorial for shooting woodland scenic images inspires you to grab that camera in the winter time too! These photo tips sure got my attention. – Bob

  1. James, your second image would be a contender for next years calendar πŸ‘

  2. Some nice images there James, I really liked the one at 8.20, lovely use of a splash of light.
    Woodland is a subject that I’m really interested in and am always looking for opportunities to improve.

  3. Nice images James, I like the fungus on the fallen Tree landscape image.

  4. Hey James. I thought the first two images were quite beautiful!

  5. Winters Claw! Its back, I remember it well, it grabbed your bits last time… 😳 Watched on my monitor in full 27inch technicolour! Wonderful compositions, simplified chaos. You do this so so well. Very enjoyable my friend! Working backwards, so will head over and watch last weeks after this weeks… Binge on Burns.

  6. Fantastic morning to be out and a great set of images that you captured. Well done πŸ‘πŸ»

  7. Hi James, that frost was stunning, loved the shots you got… need to get better at checking results with my 200 ml and see what I can get. I normally favour the wide shots… I can sense a challenge day haha πŸ‘πŸ˜€ thanks for sharing

  8. James, LOVE the second image on the first sequence! I missed watching your videos, good to be able to watch one, it drives me to keep up with them! Cheers!
