27 Powerful Portrait Photography Composition Examples Incorporating Trees and Leaves

Today we are going to share a few portrait photography composition examples in nature that we thought were quite clever with their use of trees and leaves.

As you probably know, coming up with interesting ideas for a shoot can be quite difficult. For that reason we sometimes like to put together image collections that are designed to spark some creative ideas in your mind or for you to riff off. Of course, it’s best if you can add your own original twist to make your photo shoot successful.

This collection of portrait photography ideas with trees and leaves have a few common themes – namely that many of the subjects are heavily situated within the natural elements that the photographer could find and even sometimes behind them. In a lot of cases, you will hopefully realise that there are many cool photo ideas for portraits as close as your own backyard.
