This article will tell you how to take good nature photography. My main focus will be leafs and flowers. When taking a picture of a flower, first, you need a good aperture and shutter-speed, maybe even a little brighter, depending on the weather. My favorite aperture for nature pictures is F4.5 and F5. That way, if there are sticks in the background, you can blur them out. Do NOT pick the flower or leaf off unless its already in a vase, or you are trying to make someone model with the flower, but I’m not talking about portraits today. Anyways, you need to get as close as you can, and focus perfectly. Make sure your camera is still, and take the photo! When you have taken 2-3, you can edit them on your computer if you want a really appealing photo, that’s what I always do to mine. Here is an example of and edited photo I took.
You notice that this is inside a great background. That is usually important, but this next photo is an exception.
You see the brown, but blurry background? I could not let that be in my photo. How did I do it? Well, it’s a whole lecture-full of info, buy in short, the low aperture made the background blurry, and that is depth of field. But that is for another article. Please post any photos you have taken on the comments!
