Today, we thought we'd take a look at some photography tutorials members can have a go at while enjoying the outdoors, plus with these particular tutorials, you probably won't have to venture far from home with your camera to capture some top shots.

1. Trees 

It's an obvious one we know but as you'll be surrounded by them, it makes sense to pick up some tips on how you can photograph trees a little differently.

Here are three of ePHOTOzine's top tutorials on this subject:

2. Drag Landscapes

Why not give your woodland shots an abstract twist and shoot a drag landscape? This can be done in-camera or if you prefer, shoot your 'normal' image and then apply the drag effect in Photoshop



3. Sunbeams Through Trees

Capturing sunbeams bursting through a treeline will add an extra level of interest and an almost magical / fairytale feel to your woodland shots. However, for the shot to work you need a few elements to come together at the right time and you can find out what these are in this tutorial: How To Shoot Sunbeams Through Trees

4. Macro

From fungi to insects or close-up shots of bark, wooded areas are full of macro photography opportunities. Have a look at these macro photography tutorials for inspiration:



5. Wildlife

If you're patient and don't mind sitting still for a while a spot of bird or even squirrel photography could be something you want to try. Just don't forget your long lens and wrap up warm if heading out early as mornings can still have a bite to them at this time of year. For more tips, have a read of these tutorials:
