Forests are home to some of the most life on the planet, and it’s fitting, as the oxygen generated by plants and trees is essential for much of the life on Earth. Although large portions of the world have been deforested to make way for industry and settlements, there are still major forests around the globe that act as national parks, tourist destinations, havens for life and resources and more.

For photographers, forests are great locations to shoot, because the trees can dissipate the light even during the harsher daytime and allow for great photographs. Also, forests are full of life ranging from small bugs and birds to large mammals such as bears, deer and more.

The key to great forest photography is, like most photography, patience. It’s easy to scare wildlife away with a lot of impatient moves and photos, but for the patient photographer, the rewards can be breathtaking:
