Garden Photography - Athina England

 Garden Photography is one of the easiest topics to find subjects for. Just look out your back window., you should always find something in bloom.

Look for leading lines, a path up to a shed, an edge of border, anything that will lead viewers eye to the end destination in the picture.

For close-up images of flowers make sure that you are steady, focus as close as you can to the flower and shoot.

Don't try and shoot when it's windy unless you want a real challenge on your hand. Trust me I've tried it too many times and it's not worth the hassle.

For lighting try and use a bit of flat tin foil to bounce light onto the plant with out using flash.

Try a range of different angles and find what you like.

Examples are shoot the flower from behind rather than from the front.


And the most important thing is to keep shooting!
