Thick Foggy Clouds

Be a little adventurous and capture the forest at night. Dark forest photography is an exhilarating task. Foggy forest photography might sound spooky, but it is the best way to capture different moods of nature.

The fog is usually found on higher altitudes, so you need to have an adventurous spirit to photograph mists and clouds. But, if you want to relax and take a foggy forest picture, we recommend forest smoke bomb photography.

Smoke bombs come in different colors, so you have a choice to be creative with the greens and browns. Find a good contrast and choose a smoke bomb according to the season. For example, blue during winters and bright colors during summers.

Try Different Lenses

Shoot with a long lens, a wide lens and a macro lens. You cannot miss out on anything nature is offering you. A long lens is excellent for capturing forest images with tight compression.

The lens will focus on one element and soften out the other, enhancing the details of the picture. A wide lens captures the most scenery. You can adjust your angle and capture with a wide lens to create an in-depth effect in an image.

A wide lens will capture the depth of the tall giant trees in the forest. A macro lens allows you to capture the insect life in a forest. You cannot miss out on these tiny details (pun intended). A macro lens helps you look at the details of miniature insects.

Capture Every Season And Weather

Beautiful forest photography is when every season is caught in its true essence. Capture the bright green samplings in spring, rusty orange leaves in autumn, a snowstorm in winters and a waterfall in summers.
