When I started taking photos using my digital camera, one of my favourite subject are trees, I just become a little obsessive when it comes to photographing trees.
Trees always attract my attention. The shape, texture, color and lines of trees always fascinates me, I can't resist a well-shaped and nicely lit tree when I see one. I find trees inspiring, there is something spiritually uplifting about seeing the beauty of trees looking up the sky. If trees could speak I guess every tree have a story to tell.
I like taking photos of trees with an unusual shape, they are a perfect model. Trees are everywhere and most of the time you'll just get lucky and find interesting and unusual trees along the way.
I find it amazing that sometimes you can compare trees to people, some are stout, others are slim, some are massive and tall. What I find is that some older trees have a stronger presence, than the rest.
I still need to learn a lot of techniques in photographing trees, I want to photograph trees in different times of the year, i haven't really found a tree that is isolated in some way from its surroundings. I guess it takes a lot of practice and scouting for a model tree.... here are few shots that I have taken.
I hope you will like them...
