Day 6: The Flowered and the Landscape.

July 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Don't forget photographing flowers in the bigger landscape. It might be in the forest or it may be in the meadow, flowers add a great deal of color to the landscape. When shooting landscapes I always try to find some foreground subject to add interest to the scene. Flowers can be a strong compositional element to add to any landscape. Getting in close on the lupine here allowed for some strong foreground detail and draws the viewer into the larger image. In most cases the blooms will add extra element of color or texture to help attract some attention to the photo in creasing the dynamic nature of your landscapes.

Tripods are still a good option for these kinds of shots as they can let use use the small f-stops needed to increase your depth of field, getting crisp focus on foreground and more distant background scenery. This is where a wide angle lens works well for flower photography, or you might try a tilt shift or perspective control lens in these types of images to help grab that extra crisp focus. This is also a good image to add the use of a circular polarizing filter that can help with adding saturated color by removing reflected light from the surfaces of petals and foliage, providing for rich colors.
