Spring Flower Photography Tips
So you all probably know that I love to photograph flowers. Flowers are one of nature’s masterpieces and I look at every flower as a work of art. I love to photograph flowers from different angles and perspectives, bringing out features that aren’t really appreciated by the eye. Below are just a few of my tips. If you are interested in learning more about flower photography I highly recommend googling Harold Davis.
Tip #1 Use a telephoto lens to photograph the inner beauty of a flower. A telephoto lens will keep you at a distance so that you do not cast a shadow on the flower.
Tip #2 – Photograph the back of the flower from the ground level will show off a side of the flower not usually appreciated and will give the back of the flower a greater perspective reaching toward the sky. You can use a wide-angle lens for this effect.
Tip #3 – Use a macro lens and a tripod so you can increase the size of a smaller flower. Using the largest aperture will create a blurrier background. If you can’t afford a macro lens, try extension tubes. A tripod is a necessity.
Try these 3 short and sweet tips and your flower photography will really start blooming. If you liked this blog. please comment.
