Many consider bushes, branches of trees or any natural element for that matter as distraction if it is right in front of the subject. I won't say that I was any different. But that way of thinking has changed and now a days without even realizing, I am gravitated more towards making an image which has some natural element in the frame rather than a neat and clean image of the subject.
My creativity is to play with the natural elements in any season, any weather, whatever nature has on offer. In most of the cases, foliage has been my best ally where it has helped me to create interesting frames, that gives an opportunity for me to build curiosity among the viewers. It has also helped to soft the light, allowing me to play with it, which ignites the colors even more without applying any vibrance to my images.
This approach has aided me in creating visually appealing images which has a story on its own. Without taking any more time of yours, here I present some of my best images which has Natural elements at play!
This style of thinking out of the box and using the natural elements has opened new doors for me in the art of composition and that is how I like to play with nature through my images.
