Looking Upward – A Photographer Tried a New Perspective to Capture the Woods and He Nailed It

There is a well-known saying that goes, “Consequences don’t mean anything, perspective is everything” and there is no other saying that is more true than that. The incredible images Manuelo Bececco has taken of forests are a very testament to the power of perspective.

Our perspective on the world has an impact on how we feel, think and how we react to different circumstances. The surrounding we are in can also be considered in the same way. Let’s try to look at the surroundings around us from a different angle. We can create a completely new, distinctive, and enhanced version of it.

Manuelo Bececco is an Italian photographer who captures the woods around him using a straightforward but wholly original method. He takes beautiful photographs by employing looking upward technique, which by the way explain it itself.

On more technical details, he is using a ultra-wide lens so that he can capture a large area in his frame. And the barrel distortion of wide lenses is playing a major part in these photographs by curving the trunks of the trees. It makes them look totally different than we are used to see them everyday.

Bececco talks about his insanely breathtaking photographs: “When I’m among the woods, I feel like everything is in my own way; giant trees or branches that form barriers, irises of the eyes. These are some things that I only imagine, and that I can sometimes turn into photographs”.

According to PlayJunkie, Bececoo’s early photographs are more conventional since he documented landscapes and mountains. Bececco has grown as a talented professional photographer over the years and has already started to explore a variety of new approaches. Along the way, he discovered that there is whole new perspective of the woods when the camera is in ground level and turned towards up.
