Creative Flowers - Part 3
I hope you are enjoying this series. Today I will talk about painterly backgrounds. I love photographing my flowers with a soft painterly background. To do this you want to create background blur. Before you start you will want to view your subject from different angles to find what background looks best. For instance, if there is a patch of yellow flowers near your subject, you may want to use that to create a beautiful yellow painterly background to compliment the flower you are photographing. Sometimes all it takes is raising or lowering the camera a bit.
Insects can be a fun addition to your flower photography!
