Let’s get you using your camera
Well, Spring has started and the flowers are coming up. If you are feeling stuck at home and want a bit of inspiration…here’s an assignment for you. Why don’t you get out into your garden and take a photo of a flower. I would love to see what you’ve taken, send me an email with your best image.
I’d love to see a close up of just one flower…have a wide enough lens opening (f/stop) that everything in the background should be out of focus. Remember to move in close and the “rule of thirds” will apply here as well.
The aperture is also referred to as an “f-stop”. A low number is going to open up wider. The wider it opens, the more light is let in, and the blurrier your background will be. Shooting “wide open” means setting your aperture to the widest it can possibly be.
The rule of thirds involves mentally dividing up your image using 2 horizontal lines and 2 vertical lines. The idea is that an off-centre composition is more pleasing to the eye and looks more natural than one where the subject is placed right in the middle of the frame.
I’m here for you with any questions and I’d love to see you best image!
