I hope you enjoy this series for flowers. If you want to check out other Tips from Cee.
This tip will be more of a pictorial lesson than anything else. I hope you enjoy these photos and get an idea of what type of flower photography you like.. I am going to break this lesson into two Parts: Cropping and Different Angles.
Especially when you know you may want to crop a photo, make sure your camera is on high resolution. For those who know the difference between JPG and RAW, always shoot in RAW if you do any type of post processing. The one thing things to keep in mind as you take your photo always zoom out a little bit. Leave space round the flower. That way you will have room for cropping.
This first grouping of photos is of multiple flowers (alliums).
This second grouping of cropped photos are of a single flower is of single symmetrical waterlily.
