Photographing Flowers

Front Cover
Photgraphers' Institute Press, 2006 - Photography - 155 pages
Flowers are often a photographer’s favorite subject, and this sumptuous manual covers all the practical skills and aesthetic considerations involved in shooting an array of blossoms. Whether the image is a close-up of a petal or a long shot of a landscape brilliantly in bloom, author Sue Bishop’s inspirational compositions celebrate color and form: they move beyond straightforward depictions of flowers into something more abstract, personal, and unique. She presents three comprehensive sections that cover technical matters such as equipment, lighting, exposure, and depth of field; using color; and artistic concerns such as the use of backgrounds, soft focus, and special effects.
