Photographing flowers is a simple trick that most photographers perfect. They rarely move and there is no need to grasp their attention. Here are a few tips that you may use when photographing flowers.
- Photograph the flowers at their level. Wildflowers can be a great foreground but you must be careful when photographing at their level. Experiment with several shots until you find the desired image you are wishing for.
- Don’t try to focus in on the sky. A field of flowers is a wonderful and colorful image that can be obscured if there is too much sky in the frame. Try illuminating as much of the sky as possible and try to capture your image on bright cloudy days.
- Try using a telephoto lens if possible. Using such a lens, can compress the distance thus bringing together bright color of the flowers.
- As beautiful as white flowers are, be careful not to focus on a field of white flowers. This can cause the image to be overexposed.
- Experiment with different textures and development of your photo. Other than color try black and white.
- Although a single field of flowers is a remarkable image, try also to incorporate background images such as a barn or hay stack. Experiment with your vision and don’t just focus on one main objective.
Take as many pictures as you can and try to experiment on different days. Pay attention to your local weather as well as the particular days/months of the year that flowers are in full bloom and at their best. Be sure and stop at http://www.42photo.com for your latest camera needs.
