Flowers and Plants

Your gardens, plant pots and local parks should be brimming with flowers by now so why not make the most of the colourful  flora and head outside with your bag, tripod and camera? To fill you with inspiration, ideas and tips, we've put together a list of 8 tutorials to get you thinking more creatively about your flower shots.

1. Low Key Flower Photography

Photographing a flower head on a black background is a simple but effective way to make yourself a piece of wall art. The bright petals against a stark, dark background make a vibrant image.

2. Flowers - An Alternative Approach

The obvious thing to do when taking flower pictures is to point your camera at the bloom, fill the frame and fire, but there's much more that can be done to add creativity to your pictures.


3. Abstract Flower Photography Tips

The most popular approach to flower photography is to include the whole flower but by getting in very close or by choosing a less conventional crop you can create a rather exciting image.


4. Arty Style Flower Photography

Learn how to shoot flowers in a way that'll make your shots stand out from the crowd.


5. Creating Zoom Blur Flower Heads
