Landscape photographer and Amateur Photographer of the Year 2015-winner Lee Acaster offers a guide to creating beautiful images of woodland foliage
1. Make sure you research your location
One of the beautiful things about shooting woodland images is that you don’t have to travel too far to find potential locations.
‘While having access to a nearby forest is great,’ says Lee, ‘there is just as much interest to be found in the copses, parks and field edges that most of us barely give a second look to as we pass them each day.
‘I often scour the OS maps of my local area looking for patches of trees to explore. These days I rarely travel more than 15 minutes from home when heading out to shoot woodland images.’
