When walking through the forest, most people tend to look around them in order not to get lost and rarely turn their attention to the setting above. Well, it turns out that this is a huge mistake since photos of Manuelo Bececco prove that if you look up while in the forest, you might be rewarded with magical scenery.
Bececco is an Italian photographer who recently captured the attention of social media users with his impressive photos that show forests from the bottom looking up. This unique way of taking photographs results in breathtaking shots that capture the beauty of the forests and show just how magical it can be.
Bececco’s beginnings in nature photography were more conventional as he documented landscapes and mountains. Over time, he started experimenting with different styles and realized that turning the camera up when inside a forest can reward him with breathtaking shots.
“In the middle of the woods, I seem to see everything in my own way—giant trees or branches that form barriers, irises of the eyes,” – Bececco told My Modern Met about his works. “These are things that I only see in my mind and that I can sometimes turn into photographs.”
