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 different lighting conditions affect the look of flowers (New for this Edition)

    Definitely flower photography is my favorite (still after urban architecture). Flowers don’t run or fly away, they only move with the wind.

    Beware that this is NOT a new book. This edition was published in 2011.
    It IS an excellent book, just not a new one.
