2 About Lighting


Capturing an image of a quiet wood is often difficult because the preponderance of dark objects will cause the camera to overexpose the image. The result is an image whose colors are much less saturated and a whole lot lighter than what you're seeing with your own eyes. If you instead try to capture an image of the woods when the sun is shining brightly through the forest canopy, the bright contrast can make it difficult for the camera to capture any detail. You'll probably get a better photograph if you simply wait for the sun to go behind a cloud.
