Nature Through your Lens

Picture of Nature Through your Lens
Is there a way to document the beauty of nature within the limited frame of a camera lens? Although the true essence of nature includes using more than just your sense of sight, you have to create a picture that truly is worth a thousand words. To do this, you must put creativity into your photographs. Whether it is using shadowing, filters, or different angles, the picture shows a different outlook on nature.There are multiple concepts I will discuss with you, but the first is all about angles.

Step 1: All About Angles

As seen in the picture above, ordinary grass can be shown in a different point of view by putting your camera on the ground at an angle. It will make it look like you are a small animal or an ant, winding through the jungle-like grass.

Step 2: Illusions

Picture of Illusions
Sometimes you can make a picture look like an illusion by using a background with a pattern throughout it, like the natural one in this picture. I waited until the evening when the sun was behind me. I found a natural background, and stepped into the center of it. It looks like I am in the center of a spiral or black hole, and it adds depth. That was what I was getting at in this photo. It was just my shadow in the forest escape of trees, while I stood behind a waist-high wall in front of the trees. Instead of this, it morphed into an illusion before my eyes. This is a concept everyone should try.

I simply use Instagram or another app, Vintique, although sometimes I don't use any at all.
