Wildflower Photography by Steve Berardi is designed to be a complete guide to photographing wildflowers. This is the 2nd edition which has been completely revamped with new sections, more example photos, and updated content. This 64 page eBook takes you through the whole process from equipment and camera settings to post-processing in Photoshop.
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.
Berardi says, “Have you ever come home with a full memory card only to !nd 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.”
