Photographing Flowers from a photographers perspective

Photographing flowers for stock photos will be the best option for a new photographer who has just begun his career in photography. Flowers are the natural choice since they are beautiful and will pose for the photo shoot without much fuss. Moreover its s bit easy for a starter to find and click flowers without much ado. The market to sell fotos of flowers is quite large one just needs the right contacts and market to showcase their talent, but remember it a highly competitive niche so sub quality work will not really help you much if you are planning to seek a living out of selling your photographs with flowers as the prime subject.

Getting the right angle while photographing flowers is of utmost importance. The best option is to take as many shots from different angles and select the best one out of them. You may have to lie down to take your best shot and remove any grass blades or other flowers to have an unhindered view of your subject. Taking shots from unusual angles will surely make your photos stand apart from the crowd.

The lighting part needs to be taken care of by means of studying the angle of the sun throughout the day as natural light will give you the best effects instead of using a flash. Sunlight will also ensure that the background is lit well. Take pictures early in the morning as the wind will be low and the morning dew will be adding to the beauty of the flowers. Using a tripod is always advised so that you don’t get those blurry images once you download or develop the photographs to be marketed. There may be instances where you may need to soften the light falling on your subject. Use a diffuser in that case it will be really helpful in getting the desires results. If you are low on budget make a diffuser of your own but make sure it works like the original commercial diffuser that is sold or rented in the market.

Make sure while placing the subject in the frame that it is not centered that is you are not focusing it on the bull’s eye. Placing the subject at the center-top will be just fine and placing it at the center-bottom will be the best option. Take care to manage the background as a busy background will kill your image. Make sure that you don’t have distracting backgrounds. Don’t rely on software’s as a natural background will work wonders instead of changing it later on Photoshop or any other software.
