How to break through the bottleneck of flower photography and master these basic skills is difficult to be popular

The bright colors, shapes and various appearances of flowers make them one of the most popular photography themes. It’s fun and not too difficult to shoot a very beautiful flower. But there may be some challenges to be perfect. Here are some practical tips on how to shoot flowers. It is not necessary to take special cameras to shoot flowers. You can use a simple entry-level camera, and even take some beautiful flowers photos with your phone. Compact cameras such as digital SLR or Sony can give you better control over various parameters and produce higher quality images. But remember, it’s the photographer who took the picture, not the camera. The final effect also depends on people. The effect of Flower Photography depends on enough light and fast shutter speed, and it is not necessary to use tripod when shooting flowers.. However, in some cases, such as bad weather, tripod will help you to take clearer pictures of flowers. When you take a photo very close, even a slight shake of the camera can cause blurring and display in the photo. Using the tripod with the remote shutter line or the camera’s self timer will greatly reduce the chance of blurring due to the camera shaking. Although there is no set of fixed composition rules for shooting any particular type of flower, in order to enhance the overall appearance of the image, you can move closer to the flower, try to fill a large part of the viewfinder or LCD screen with the flower body. There is no particularly interesting place in the photos. Petals are also messy. To avoid these defects, move towards the flower distance and focus close on the smaller scene area to attract the attention of the audience to the local areas on the flowers. With such composition, more details can be displayed. Another effective way to shoot flowers is to use zoom shooting of the camera, and using close focus end shooting will show more details, which may not be seen in photos taken further away. The fine details of the flowers and raindrops on the small flowers are more noticeable because they are in the composition, becoming close proximity. Flower photography can not only capture single flowers. You can also take a set of flowers or flower arrangement works, which are great flower photography themes. When shooting a set of flowers, you need to make sure that the image is balanced. In other words, please don’t have several flowers on the left, but there are no flowers on the right or elsewhere in the image, but more flowers should respond to it. This is a group of photos of flowers, with clear flower body in the main position because it is surrounded by fuzzy flowers. Therefore, the picture has a visual balance. The above picture shows a group of similar flowers. Compare this picture to the previous picture. The picture has no specific focus. However, the biggest difference between the two images is that the following image is more consistent and balanced. Although none of the flowers in this picture is the focus of attention, all the flowers are the focus, and they are distributed evenly. The basic composition rules can improve the effect of flower photography. However, as long as your picture contains some interesting elements that can attract the attention of the audience, you can creatively break the composition rules. You can take some very beautiful flowers as long as you have enough light in the scene. Because the quality of light will affect the overall appearance of the picture. The quality of light is different from that of cloudy day in sunny days. The light in cloudy or cloudy days is soft or even. There is little shadow cast on flowers, so many photographers prefer to shoot in cloudy days. Look at the flower picture on the right side of the above figure. It was shot in cloudy days. There is no clear shadow anywhere in the picture. The overall appearance of the flower is very soft and is uniformly illuminated. It is also possible to take beautiful photos of flowers in direct sunlight. Take a look at the picture on the left. It was taken on a sunny day. Some areas of the flower have shadows, which are photos of the flowers or parts of the surrounding areas that are illuminated bright and the other in deep shadows. This effect is usually less attractive. In any case, please don’t give up shooting flowers, even on a sunny day. Just pay attention to the shadow not affect the effect of flower photography. “” < p > < p > when it’s close to flower shooting on a sunny day, your body or camera may cast unwanted shadows on a part of the flower or its surrounding area. Therefore, check and make sure that no unexpected shadows are cast on the area to be photographed. On the other hand, if possible, you can deliberately cast shadows across the flower and its surrounding areas by shielding the sun with your body. This way, you can avoid the problem of a very bright part of the scene and a dark shadow on the other. Do you use flash? Usually, flowers taken with natural light look more realistic and natural than flowers captured with camera flash. Taking a photo with a full power flash may make the image look faded and unnatural. However, in some cases, the use of a 1/2 power flash will reduce the effect of shadow on the image effect. One of the challenges to shoot flowers is accurate focusing. If you’re shooting flowers from a far distance, there’s no big problem focusing. However, when you are close to the flower, the camera lens may not focus on the area you intend to be focused on. When taking this picture, the camera points to the entire area in the center of the flower. However, the camera actually focuses on the area behind the flowers. By adjusting the camera position and using the focus displayed on the LCD screen, it can be focused on the target area, and this is corrected. Therefore, when taking a close-up photo of the flowers, check the LCD screen of the camera frequently to ensure that the camera lens is aligned to the correct area. When shooting flowers close, it is best to focus on the center of the flower, which is usually the main theme. Also because when you shoot flowers in close proximity, the depth of field can be shallow. Even if the leaves or petals around the center of the flower are not clearly focused, you can still see very beautiful pictures. Just focus the center of the flower and the surrounding areas clearly. To help focus in the center of the flower or any other part of the focus to be clear, try using the camera’s single point focus feature. With single point focus, you can easily and accurately determine the area of camera focus. When you shoot flowers close, another problem you may encounter is that the camera lens is not focusing at all. This usually happens when you are closer to the subject than the minimum focus distance of the camera lens. Therefore, you must know the closest focus distance of the lens, or change the position to focus the camera lens. It is only a little bit moving that you can get different perspectives on the same flower. Bending down and shooting a flower on the ground will be very good. You also try to move left and right. By doing so, you will be surprised to find that flowers and background areas look slightly different from different perspectives. “< p > < p > macro mode: you have another option to use the camera’s macro mode.”. The micro distance mode is designed for shooting small objects such as flowers or insects. Using the micro mode tells the camera you are trying to take a picture at a distance closer to the normal focus distance. The micro range mode is an automatic shooting mode, so the camera will control settings such as aperture and shutter speed. Remember that different lenses will have different minimum focus distances. Exposure settings: the exposure settings of flower photography are basically the same as those of most other subjects. The camera lens aperture and shutter speed settings will depend on the amount of light available. “< p > < p > if you take a flower photo without tripod, try using a shutter speed of 1/60 seconds or higher.”. This will reduce the camera jitter and eliminate the emergence of fuzzy phenomenon. Setting of depth of field: depth of field is how many clear areas are in the image. Depth of field in an image is usually referred to as depth or light. Many photographers like to use shallow depth of field when taking flowers photos, because it helps to separate the subject from anything that may distract from the background. It can control the depth of field in the image to a great extent, but there are several factors that affect the depth of field. These factors include the distance between the camera lens and the subject, the focal length of the lens used and the setting of the camera aperture. The shorter focal length will produce a deeper depth of field. When using a wide-angle focal length, it may be very shallow depth of field unless the camera lens is very close to the subject. If you want to shoot very shallow depth of field, it’s easier to achieve longer focal length. If you have the intention to shoot, please aim the lens at the flowers because it is always a beautiful or interesting topic. You have only completed half of the work through the above skills. The next step is to take full advantage of your creativity and photography skills when you shoot flowers. So you will shoot a more perfect work!
