Spring is here, everything is reviving, and all kinds of flowers are gradually opening up. This is a theme that many photographers like to shoot. But it takes not only some luck, but also some photography knowledge to shoot beautiful flowers. Today we are going to talk about practical tips for taking flowers.
Simplify the background
Simplify the background of the flower composition to better highlight the subject. I think that because the structure, lines and colors of the flowers are very beautiful, the simplicity of the background plays a vital role in the overall quality of the work.

The method of simplifying the background can be shot at a low angle so that the flowers appear under the sky in the background, so that a simple background effect can be obtained. You can also use background paper, backlight and dark background underexposure to simplify the background.
The method of highlighting the theme can not only be used to simplify the background shooting, but also can be created by using the blurred background method. Using a macro lens or a telephoto lens and a large aperture to shoot here can get a good shooting effect.

In the use of telephoto lenses and macro lenses, the macro lens is more relaxed with smaller flowers. Due to the characteristics of the macro lens, you can shoot at a closer distance, not only can shoot a smaller depth of field, but also because of the larger magnification ratio, you can better express the details of the flower.
Contrast between virtual and real
When shooting with blur, you can also use the relationship between virtual and real in the picture to increase the sense of space in the picture. At the same time, the contrast between virtual and real can make the picture more interesting. This approach usually requires blurred objects in the front and back of the picture, and only the subject flowers are kept in a clear state. This kind of picture is more beautiful.

There is another way of shooting flowers to express the “micro” part. This shooting method can easily attract the attention of the audience. This is because of the structure of the human eye. It is usually difficult for our naked eyes to observe very close objects. Most people cannot see objects clearly when they are within 15 cm of their eyes. In this case, you can use a macro lens to shoot the details of the flower, and use the virtual reality to make the picture a good contrast, which will allow the audience to see a different “world”. Therefore, partial shooting of flowers has always been a favorite theme of many photographers.

flower and dew are a good combination. The drops of water on the petals of the flowers can make the flowers feel more crystal clear. The reflection of the water drops also changes the structure of the flower itself, giving people a “fresh” feeling. This shooting method can use a water spray can to spray the flowers in a mist, so that the petals can be filled with water drops.

Every flower is beautiful, but many times the flowers are clustered in front of us. So in this case, we can use composition techniques to fill the picture with many flowers. Such repeated flowers and uniform colors can make the picture more attractive.
