Photo of the Week: Flower and Graden Photo Tips
If you are going this year there are two general rules to follow when filming gardens or flowers. If it's a garden you want to do a panoramic or landscape shot that includes some of the surrounding area. This gives life to the photo and makes it pop.
If you are filming a flower you generally want to zoom in or get as close as possible and set your aperture as low as you can go. An f-stop of 3.5 or smaller is best. This will put the flower in focus and blur out everything else. This really draws attention to the single flower in a garden it also draws out it's details.
