Forest Light (Two Photographs)

The lighting in forests is extraordinary. Because there is a canopy that only lets in some light there are various effects that mimic studio lighting. For example, rays of light that break through the canopy and act as spotlights which is the case here. Photography is all about light and we have several options in nature – time of day, shadows, spotlights, overcast soft lighting. All worth exploring. One trick is to bring down the highlights and exposure in processing to emphasize the lighting, a better solution than a vignette in my view.
