While there’s no denying that birds have a great view from high in the sky, what we can see from down below is also undeniably beautiful. Manuelo Bececco, a photographer from Italy, did a project in which he photographed trees from a worm’s eye view. He effectively captured their enduring beauty by using light and the surrounding forest colors in a strategic manner.
Though he now shoots both weddings and travel pictures, Bececco started out by photographing landscapes. As he progressed, trees began to stand out in his work. Using new angles and bringing out different textures, Bececco beautifully brings out the glory of the woods everywhere.
When it comes to the woods, Bececco sees them from a perspective that is wholly his own while taking pictures. Their transformations from spring to winter and even just their smaller day to day changes are perfectly delivered to his audience. Using just the light of the sun filtering through the branches, Bececco brings out the mystic peace that pervades his surroundings. Each picture he takes is deeply personal to him and receiving praise from people all over the world has made him very happy.
According to him, this kind of work is unlike anything else he’ did in the past with landscapes. It becomes all about the mood and the ambiance as it is essential to make the viewers feel and understanding how joyful he is to be present in such beautiful places.
