Photographing flowers made easy
1. Take your time
Before you start taking photos, leave your camera in its bag and approach the flower up close to take a good look at it. Look at whether you like the splendid blossom as a whole or if you prefer it from right up close when you look more carefully.
6. Minor corrections
You can clean up the surrounding area if you want. Pluck away the dry leaves or remove any dirt. But don’t clear away everything otherwise the photo might look too staged.
7. It’s all about the precision
The setting plays a very important part when you’re photographing up close. Select the most beautiful flower as your object and make sure that the focus is not on the leaf but on the flower otherwise the flower will shift into the background.
And the rule of thumb is: if you can’t change the shooting direction, change the moment of capture.
