Photography Tip: When to Shoot Flowers #1

One best time to shoot flowers is right after the rain. The raindrops on petals and leaves will give a magical effect especially the water droplets reflecting the colors of the flowers.

Here is an example.

    1. Another trick. It it is not after the rain, you can fake it by spraying or misting the flowers with water. Anotehr wise idea.

    1. You can have the same effect even there's no rain. I am not using DSLR. I used canon ixus 70...oldies na no?

  8. I agree with this technique. It's nice also if there are animals flying around let's say a bee? hahaha! It may sting you though. Kidding aside. I love taking photos of flowers. I just hope I have a macro lens.

    1. That will be another good idea though difficult to shoot moving objects especially now that I am just using digicam. Macro is one of my project too after purchasing my DSLR.

  10. I do hope we have nice flowers like that to shoot. Although I'm not into photography, I just like to take snapshots of things around the house.

    1. All of my photos are taken around the subdivision. Sometimes, you need to roam around and you will get simple but good subject.

  16. Nice photo! Thanks for the tip. I do hope we get a little bit of rain so I can try this out - and so we can have a break from the heat we've been having the past days.

  18. I love seeing shots of flowers because here in our place, there are barely flowers planted. I rarely see one. Sa flower shops na lang ako nakakakita ng flowers talaga. :)
