This talented photographer has taken nightscape photography to the next level – by combining numerous beautiful elements of the natural world into a single image.
Set beneath a dreamy galaxy of stars, blood moons or setting suns, Daniel Greenwood’s images show the likes of waterfalls, trees and rocky chambers gleaming at ground level as a result of the aura above.
The unique nature of Vancouver-based Daniel’s work has received much discussion with the photography community as rather than take a single image of the night’s sky, the 34-year-old has pre-visualised idea of the final image in his head while hunting out natural wonders.
Having then photographed the separate elements in his desired image, the photographer next combines them to create his eye-catching works.
Daniel, who teaches workshops that allow people learn his style, said: “There are a few things that drew me to taking photos and becoming a photographer.
“The main thing was learning the ability to see deep into space with my camera.
“This was one thing that inspired me a great deal to take photos and do what I do today.
“Another thing would be the atmosphere of everyone and constant inspirations.”
In order to shoot such images, Daniel travels into the Canadian Rockies, where, he said, temperatures in the dead of winter can reach minus 40 Celsius.
Despite the mixed opinions on his style of work, Daniel said the advice he gives others starting out is simple to follow their own path.
He said: “Create what you feel you want to create and not what seems more popular or trendy at the time.
“Just do what makes you happy as an artist and forget about what all the others say!”
