CREATIVE TRICKS WITH FLOWER PHOTOS:
  • Use floral images as background elements to lay behind smaller images.
  • Create a larger image and put real flowers in front of them.
  • Use photographs of flowers as texture overlays for portraits.
  • Create your own greeting cards.
  • Add inspirational copy and print the photos or post them to mentally frame your day.

That old phrase, “stop and smell the roses” could also have you stopping to photograph the flowers. Blossoms don’t last long, but a well-planned photograph will enrich your life with a flower’s beauty forever.

PT. 2, IT’S MAY: LET’S TAKE PICTURES OF FLOWERS

Yesterday’s blog we talked about the camera tricks for taking the best photos of flowers. Today, let’s talk about the COMPOSITION TRICKS of taking photos of flowers.

Composition Tricks

  • Get down low, at “eye” level with the flower. Unique angles make flower shots more interesting.
  • Look for lines and shapes, like diagonals and S-shaped curves, to give the image a flow. Use them as foreground elements to frame your main subject.
  • Photograph flowers really early in the morning or just as the sun goes down for rich, soft lighting.
  • Spray water on flowers for that morning dew look at any time of day.
  • Place your “key” flower in a position that utilizes the rule of thirds grid for most impact.
  • Work with depth of field to isolate a single blossom or find one flower that is a different color than the rest. Find one flower that is somehow different than its surroundings.
