This is a textbook shot if you’ve been doing this for a while. It was natural to look up when surrounded by tall trees. I didn’t even need to get down low to get this low angle shot. 🙂 All the tree tops which congregated in the center of the frame formed a pattern–an important element of a strong image.
Inside the Frame series dissects how a photo incorporates composition patterns. Every photo is annotated to clearly reveal each photo composition technique used when framing the scene. Studying these photos will help you take better pictures yourself.
