Tip Number Three - Consider The Focal Point

Welcome to week Four of Taking Beautiful Flower Photos.

Step 3: Consider The Focal Point

When shooting flowers, you are typically focused on the blossom itself. However, there are other parts of that flower to consider, such as the stamen, pistil, petal or another component of the blossom.

You also want to decide whether or not you're going to get an extreme close-up and whether or not you should set your camera for macro mode.

Here are a couple examples of choosing different focal points in flower photography

Take a closer look at each of these pictures. The first one is an example of using your macro setting. The second is an example of getting the whole flower in your picture. And finally on the end you have an example of focusing on a portion of the flower.

See you next Friday for tip number two in the series. Considering the Focal Point in your flower photos.
