A New Tip For Photographing Flowers and Plants

Posted on: 13 June 2007

I just came across this great tip for photographing flowers and plants WITHOUT cutting the plant or flower and removing it. I’ve typically found that it’s easier to remove the flower in order to get it into the studio where I can control the environment (not only lighting and such but other factors such as wind). Now there is an even better alternative:

With a minimum of cost and effort, you can shield your subject from wind movement, while providing a strong background contrast, and without having to pluck it and set up indoors. By surrounding a bloom, or lower stalk, or tree branch with a suitable bucket device, great photos will be easier to capture without damaging the plant (especially good if it’s not yours).
