Following on from my previous post I have managed to get out and about and explore the bluebell woods. So far it has been a glorious season and both Micheldever and West Woods have had stunning displays. However, for me West Woods in Wiltshire is most definitely my favourite location,
The woods are just vast and offer so many opportunities for a variety of shots. When I photograph bluebells I tend to favour a relatively short telephoto or medium range zoom. The effect given with the compression of perspective makes for a pleasing look to both the drifts of bluebells and the towering beech trees. In some areas of the floor where the bluebells are sparse it can look like there are more bluebells than there actually are. I also like to use a circular polarising filter which really brings out the vibrant greens of the foliage and blues of the flowers.
