I’m one of those people who likes the Instagram aesthetic. That’s why I use a consistent editing style for most of my photography. On the other hand, with my degree in graphic design, I learned to do a lot of black and white photography. I try to use my photography to show texture and shape details in nature that may be missed in the color versions.
Nature is obviously best photographed in the great outdoors. However, you may find yourself limited by lighting conditions and surroundings. Also, the occasional wind doesn’t always favor working with details. You may not be able to bring the trees home, but flowers are something you can take home with you and have full control over all factors that can affect your photograph.
Vibrant and full of colors. That’s what professional flower photos look like. And your pictures can look the same—it only takes a few basic edits. Get to know them.
Flowers and other plants can be compelling subjects, and you can get fancier than just photographing them the same way every time. Take inspiration from today’s article and read up on the why’s and how’s of composing when you’re photographing plants.
Every year when the warm sunrays start waking nature up from its winter sleep, I can’t wait to head out again to meet spring’s first flowers. On two wheels or maybe two legs, but always with a camera. I go straight for the places nearby that are known for having early spring flowers. I hope that you too take the chance this year to get out and photograph nature in the spring. Before you do, read today’s article to learn some flower photography tips, as well as what to take in your backpack.
