Springing into Flower and Blossom Photography

Posted in Blog, Photography

Spring is surely a glorious time for photography – everywhere you look there are amazing things happening!

Tips for springtime photography

  • Watch for patterns and abstraction – they are all around you!
  • Get close, get close, get close
  • Blur out the background by getting physically closer, use a wide angle or macro lens and a wide open aperture (2.8 – 5.6)
  • Break some rules! Put the sun behind your subject, make them black and white, get cock-eyed, shoot dying or dead things
  • Pay attention to backgrounds – clean and clear make your subject really pop!
  • Get down on your knees, look up, go behind – angles, angles, angles!
  • Remember the bugs and bees – they are amazing too
