Proper lighting

It's hard to make a good photo from inside a forest. Almost always you have counterlight, and the green of the leaves is much too easily destroyed by either the backlight or by the blue sky reflecting on the leaves. An overcast sky helps, but subtracts the blue color which is otherwise hardest to find in a forest! The combination of low sun, blue sky and a polarizer to darken the sky and keep leaves from bluing off produced this picture.

Forest stream

Water starts and supports life, so it also adds life to any picture.

Enchanted forest

Old grown trees, beard lichens and parasitic flowering plants add up to create this fairy-tale forest in the heart of the Nahuelbuta range.

Rain forest

It would be sacrilege to photograph a true rain forest without any rain!
