1. Lambs

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Sheep and lambs


One of the most notable and iconic features of spring is the abundance of baby animals. The easiest of these to go out and photograph freely are lambs. They are spritely creatures, and so to capture them sharply, use a higher shutter speed as they are liable to move just as you have set up your shot. There is more information on lamb photography in our lamb photography tutorial.


2. Flowers

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Spring flowers


At the beginning of spring, snowdrops and daffodils will begin to shoot and bloom, providing ample opportunity for some macro and flower cluster shots. Head out to your nearest wooded area to find some wild spring flowers as well as waiting for the flowers in your garden to show.

3. The Last Frosts

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Frosty landscape


At this time of year, the weather is getting milder, but you'll still be able to capture some frost if you're up and about early enough. Frost looks great when it forms on newly sprouting plants, as the vibrant colour contrasts nicely with the white of the frost.  You can find out more in our frost photography tutorial.


4. Fresh Vegetation

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Landscape


Spring is not just about close-up shots. Take advantage of the blooming colours and fresh greens to create wider landscape shots, or even panoramas, that look more vibrant and alive. ePHOTOzine has plenty of landscape tutorials over in our technique section. 


5. Sunrise / Sunset

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Sunset/Sunrise


You can still capture the sunrise at a reasonable time now and the sun is still going down just after most finish work giving you the chance to capture a cracking sunset too. 


6. Showers/ Shooting In The Rain

6 Top Photo Opportunities Not To Be Missed This Spring: Raindrops


Showers are a key part of spring, and they shouldn't put you off getting out with your camera. Some great shots can be achieved in the rain, and more information on how to capture them can be found in our tutorial on shooting daffodils in the rain and in our tutorial on coping with bad weather.
