Throughout the past week I’ve been taking various photos of my family’s plants. A great way to both experiment with composition and to find out more about my camera. After taking these I’ve learned that a tripod is vital to getting the image top notch. The wind moves the flowers and motion blur becomes a factor so having a high shutter speed is also a must when taking plant photography. I’ve also learned that more simple flowers make better and more cinematic looking photos. For example, a smaller lily or daisy can have a bigger impact than flowers that are more larger and more complicated such as the rhododendron. Of course you have to put into factor the type of camera, lens, photographer. Here are the photos below.
