Of all the landscape photography, shots of and within forests seem to be almost forgotten about, or at least take a back seat to other more desirable landscape photography. There are a few key elements to make a magical forest shot, as seen in these 23 great images below.
- Sunrise / sunset
- shooting into the rising / setting sun
- Wide-angle lens
- Different seasons
Most all photos below include at least two of each of these elements, some more, to make magical photos. Keep in mind, shooting within a forest is much darker than outside, so take along a tripod to make sure your shots are sharp and you have a stable shooting platform.
