How to Take Beautiful Flower Photos

A Five Part Series on Taking Flower Photos

I recently received an article from Amy Renfrey, author of the excellent ebook "Digital Photography Success" (opens in new window). She writes in her article, How to Take Photos of Spring Flowers, four important steps for taking flower pictures.

Have you ever read a how to article and walked away with a headache? When it comes to learning a new camera, it can sometimes feel like too much. The easies way to learn any new skill is in steps.

And that's how this series was born. Over the next four weeks you will be receiving bite-size tips for taking better photographs of flowers.

Shall We Begin?

Flowers are attractive to almost everyone, including many other species. They are also perfect candidates for photographs as they tend to stand still, and never tire of having their photos taken. But though they are seemingly an easy subject, flowers will require some technical examination as well as some forethought before photographing.

In this series you will learn:

  1. Consider The Lighting - What is the best light for taking flower photos? And what happens when you don't have the right light?
  2. Consider The Background - Don't let the background swallow up those beautiful flowers.
  3. Consider The Focal Point - What are you really taking a picture of?
  4. Get The Right Angle - Have you ever taken a picture of a flower from the under side?

See you next Friday for number one in the series. Considering the best light for your flower photos.
