Give me big views and fine light and I am happy; woods on a bright sunny day and I am well out of my comfort zone, but I had been challenged to try woodlands.
I have been recently working with Paul Gallagher (http://www.paulgallagher.co.uk) on fine-tuning my photography and Paul suggested I should look at working more in woodlands and black & white.
To be honest, I am not someone who likes photographing woodlands as I find it difficult to create a composition with the chaos presented by all those trees – surely a lone tree is enough in an image!
Give me big views and fine light and I am happy; a trip to woodland on a bright sunny day and I was well out of my comfort zone! However; I found the bright sunlight worked well, providing great side/back-lighting that complimented the fresh green foliage of early summer.
Below is a selection of the images I managed to make.
