Composition Tip

Composition Tip - Woodland photography is the hardest genre of landscape photography, and achieving great compositions can be a huge challenge.

I return to Wistman’s Wood on Dartmoor, Devon, and share my tips for creating compositions using separation with mist and/or shallow depth of field.

Wistman’s Wood – an old mysterious oakwood – on Dartmoor, is one of my favourite woodland locations in the UK, and I wanted to see if I can improve on the images from my previous visit. Wistman's Wood was also the location for my first "proper" landscape photography vlog.

Hopefully, I've improved my filmmaking and vlogging since then 🙂
