I live in the centre of forests in 5-15 miles in every direction (planted pine, some mixed ancient, no streams alas) and I am aware that my use of them photographically is, well, pitifully inadequate. Apologies to forest lovers but many images I see are of some forest paths and dark branches, with a marked peaks in "interestingness" during autumn when there are nice colours about. Which really sums up why, although I love walking in them, shooting there just doesn't seem to inspire me (the luxury of excess, I fully admit).
I would like to open my eyes again and find good reasons to go wandering in the woods. I was really hoping for some inspiration to look at, perhaps some series where someone has managed to do something differently or found amazing light. Would anyone happen to know of any such series, or perhaps some books or tutorials which might go into forest photography and what you can do with it, what to look for, when to look for it, forests in bad weather... and so on?
Many thanks in advance
