Fine Floral Photos Page 2
You don't need to limit yourself to tight shots of a single flower,
either. Gardens or fields of flowers offer opportunities for some great landscape
pictures. You can shoot rows of flower beds from a high angle to show their
patterns, or use your zoom lens's wide-angle setting to capture the perspective
of long flower rows at a low angle. Peak seasons like springtime are obvious
times to visit a botanical garden, but many of these gardens may feature foliage
and flowers that bloom at different times of the year.
Like gardening, photographing flowers can be a peaceful and enjoyable experience. You can take your time to think about the elements that must come together to make an interesting image. Take time to smell the flowers!
If your camera has a zoom lens with a telephoto setting, you'll have a lot of versatility in composing a shot. Be sure to eliminate distracting elements in the frame before shooting.
