Flower Photography Guide

Wildflowers display some of the most brilliant colors found in nature. And, for good reason–they’re fiercely competing with each other to attract their pollinating friends: the insects and a few species of birds. However, their brilliant colors often make them difficult to photograph.

“Have you ever come home with a full memory card only to find out that all those beautiful flower photos you took have blown out highlights, washed out colors, and harsh shadows? Well, this book will teach you how to avoid these problems and come home with great wildflower photos.” -Author Steven Berardi

Some of the Many Topics Covered (65 Pages):

  • What equipment you need for photographing wildflowers
  • How to set up your shot to create pleasing compositions
  • How to choose the right aperture to ensure your flowers are in focus and tack sharp
  • How to find the perfect exposure by using tools like the RGB histogram
  • How to maximize sharpness by carefully positioning your camera (New for this Edition)
  • How different lighting conditions affect the look of flowers (New for this Edition)
  • How to create powerful compositions by using color theory (New for this Edition)
  • How to get more depth of field by using focus stacking (New for this Edition)
  • How to post-process your photos with Adobe Photoshop to reduce noise, increase contrast and saturation, make small adjustments to exposure, and make your images super sharp (tutorials apply to both Photoshop CS 4+ and Photoshop Elements 8+)
  • Learn by example with 12 example photos (five of them are new to this edition). Each example includes the camera settings that were used, as well as a complete story of how the image was made and post-processed in Photoshop.
