As part of a series on smartphone photography, professional photographer Tiffany Warner explains how you can capture moody forest scenes.
Photographing on a foggy day will always provide you with a captivating image. I often pop up to the top of Mt Macedon when I see it shrouded in clouds. Early morning after an evening of rain will usually produce some good fog. Sometimes just a drizzly grey day will work, too.
Look for areas with plenty of trees so you get the fog contrasting nicely with the tree trunks. I love to get down low and point my phone up towards the sky. As you can see in my image, everything is elongated, which adds to the mood of the photo as well as creating a really interesting image.
💡 Tip: Get down on the ground and point your phone upwards, holding it in portrait position to make the trees appear even taller.
