SOME OF YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THIS BLOG FOR A LONG TIME, AND FOR THAT I REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT. IT HAS BECOME A CHALLENGE TO FIND DIFFERENT SUBJECTS TO BRING TO THIS BLOG EACH WEEK. I DO THIS BLOG ABOUT 3 TO 4 TIMES A WEEK NOW, AND THAT IS TRICKY TO COME UP WITH DIFFERENT SUBJECTS.

I REALLY THINK I HAVE MATURED WITH MY BLOGS BY THE TIME I GOT TO THIS WEBSITE, HOWEVER. BUT, THERE IS SOME GOOD INFORMATION THERE.
You don’t have to travel very far to get great nature photography shots. There are many opportunities for nature photography right in your own backyard. There is an abundance of nature if you know how to look for it.
If you have flower beds, trees, bushes, or just wildflowers, you have many opportunities for some good nature pictures. I am going to give you a few ideas on how and what to look for. Go back to things that you have taken pictures of before but this time, look at them from a different perspective.
Shoot some “profiles” of flowers. Some flowers have very pretty profiles. Even pictures of your flowerbeds can be shot from a different angle and will give you a completely different feeling. Many people want to take pictures of butterflies with wings open and taken from high looking down. Profile pictures of butterflies and great shots also.
Most amateurs want to fill their frame with the subject, such as a flower, and have it centered right in the middle. Use the rule of thirds. Position the subject just to the right or left of center and about a third of the way up horizontally. This composition is much more pleasing to the eye.
Challenge yourself to try something new. Go back to some of the pictures you have already taken and take them from different perspectives. You may surprise yourself!
