Photograph a Flower

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Whether you want to preserve the look of an interesting flower or if you want to show off your hard work planting and potting lovely flowers, the photography of flowers is an exciting and beautiful hobby. Though sometimes, it is very difficult. It can be raining, your camera won't let you get closer without blurring, or there might be bugs on the flower. Overcoming those challenges may get hard, but if you do beat it, you get a well earned, beautiful flower in a picture to keep forever.

Adjust your camera to the close-up (macro) or flower setting. Most cameras have a "close-up" setting that you switch it to when you are taking a closer than normal photo. Your camera might also have a "flower" setting that is a "close-up" picture with different lighting arrangements. Pick an angle for your photo. There are many angles from which you can take photos of flowers from. Probably the most popular would be a straight-on, up close photo of a flower.

Focus the camera lens. Push the button that takes the pictures halfway down so it will focus on the photo. This way, if you need to take the photo quick or if it is a bit windy, you'll be able to just take the photo on the dime. To take the picture, just push it all the way down, just like taking a normal picture. Take a lot of photos of a certain type of flower then move on to the next. Maybe take six or seven photos of one flower, from different angles, and then find another pretty flower. You do this because you don't want to have a hundred photos of a pretty flower, when there's a different, more beautiful flower somewhere else. Continue to take photos of flowers. The more photographs you take of flowers, the better you get. Try taking a picture at the same time each day everyday of a flower. Try different angles, and maybe different backgrounds if you can.

Try to get a knowledge of the flowers that you will be shooting. Some flowers are 'morning' flowers and others might like full sun, where still others want to come out at sunset. If you have an idea of what your particular flowers best 'time' is, you can improve the chance of getting a better shot.
