Here are some of the most useful and helpful garden photography tips for you;
- If possible, take photos on an overcast day because that is the best light. On bright sunny days, there’s too much contrast; on cloudy days, there is more even light on your subjects which makes the colors more true. That said, taking a photo when the sun is low in the sky is an option.
- To get the right picture, sometimes you have to get up early or stay up late.
- Watch for interesting contrasts in foliage or cool-looking seedheads. Remember that plants can be just as attractive when they’re not at their peak; even spent blossoms have visual interest.
- When you select a subject to photograph, walk all around it to find your shot. Sometimes, you have to get down on the ground so you are on the same level as the plant.
- If your intended subjects are wild birds, grab a chair and park yourself in the middle of the garden where they are active. Be patient and stay still: Your shot will come.
- Don’t try to stage a natural shot because that’s probably how it will come across visually. Take your time to find the perfect, natural composition and then frame it accordingly.
- Watch how the light plays on your subject. Sometimes you could get neat-looking photos when they are backlit or when the light picks up the dew on a plant.
- It’s a good idea to have a back-up battery and memory card with you at all times. There’s nothing more frustrating than visiting a stunning garden, being anxious to shoot as many images as possible, only to have the battery die on you or max out the memory card.
