ScorpioRose's blog: A Few Tips About Taking Pictures of Plants

Posted on Sep 15, 2011 12:28 PM

<p>I'm not an expert gardener or photographer. But I appreciate the beauty of plants and the serenity their pictures brings to the eye. So I thought it would be fun to share some tips on taking pictures of your plants.</p>
<p>Sometimes what you see and the camera sees are two different things. So you may end up deleting a lot of boring pictures. You might want to try taking a shot from another angle or zooming in/away.</p>
<p>On the other hand, you may be surprised what the camera brings out from something that looks boring to your eyes.</p>
<p>Also consider the light. It can make a dramatic difference. Where the light hits on the leaves, or through the leaves. Where the shadows are. If the light is too harsh or not bright enough.</p>
<p>Of course if you are skilled with image editing software, you can do a lot to fix a shot. I'm not really a technical person myself, and I know there are others like me out there lol. However just playing with the settings can yield some fun, interesting results.</p>
<p>If you like to share your plant pics, perhaps consider starting a photo blog.</p>
<p>Well those are just a few tips, hopefully they help someone out there.</p>
<p>A few examples are below.</p>
