I have a few techniques I use when photographing my plants, here is a few of them:
- Make sure that your camera focuses on the best part of the plant, sometimes it will focus on the potting mix instead.
- Taking the photo from the best angle. experiment with a few photos to try and get the best shot of your plant/s.
- If you are taking a photo looking horizontally at the plant, e.g to show the length of a stem/ leaves, it may help to put a peice of card just behind the plants, this prevents the camera from focusing on the background, and it also blocks out background light which can make your plant stem/leaves seem thinner than they actually are. but, make sure that the source of light coming from behind you is still bright enough to produce a good photo.
- I always take my pictures in full daylight, never with a flash.
Please comment any other tips to improve this list!
