Creating Flower Fine Art Photography Through Backlighting

Backlighting is achieved when the subject is lit from behind. It is the most spectacular light we can aim for. It works magically in macro Photography where the high contrast makes the photographic subject glow from within. It can be beautifully used with translucent ... LEARN MORE.

Behind the Photograph of Tulips Flower Photography

I always love when I find a Floral Photography object that I can easily isolate against an attractive background. Some of my last pictures of this kind I found in the beautiful and inspiring Boston Public Garden. I always had this location on my bucket list but never timed it properly. This time I got it right and tulips in all colors were in full bloom. Overnight rain showers drenched the tulips in raindrops and >>> LEARN MORE

Macro Photography Tip - Pick the right aperture setting to achieve sufficient Depth of Field

What is the appropriate aperture setting?

Small apertures are set by choosing large f/stop numbers like f/11 and larger. Those camera settings provide maximum depth of field.

Large apertures on the other hand (small f-stop number like f/5.6 and smaller) minimize depth of field.

Iconic Panorama Photography Picture of the New York Brooklyn Bridge

Iconic Panorama Photography Picture of the New York Brooklyn Bridge

The Empire Fulton Ferry State Park right next to Brooklyn Bridge Park is a great photo location to photograph the New York skyline and take a panorama photography image of the Brooklyn Bridge. This image of this iconic New York landmark is comprised of 7 individual photographs taking in the wee hours and than stitched in photoshop to one large photography picture of the Brooklyn Bridge and New York City skyline. The clouds added some additional interest and the long exposure times created the silky water effects in the East River.

The unique forms and shapes of an orchid floral make them prime subjects for any flower photography endeavor. Orchids come in many colors: pink, yellow, white, purple and others that also add to their appeal. One can photograph flowers in the wild, greenhouses or purchase them from a local grocery store and capture their beauty in a studio setting. Most of my orchid photography fine art images were captured in a studio. Here we have total control of environment, background and composition.

Environmentally we do not need to worry about any wind messing with our composition. I particular love >>> LEARN MORE

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Nature Photography By Juergen Roth

Monthly Photography Tip: Besides cameras and lenses, a tripod is one of the most important investments for a nature photographer. High quality nature photographs are rarely achieved when hand holding your camera. A tripod is essential for low light during the morning, evening and twilight, for shooting wildlife, for macros and for experimenting with impressionistic photography. It not only steadies your shooting equipment for maximum image quality, it also will help you discover the world of photography. You are more likely to step back, think and compose the photograph. You will ask yourself: do I have a straight horizon, do I have sufficient depth of field or shall I open up the aperture setting to minimize depth of field, are there distracting elements in the foreground or background of my composition, do I even have a composition?

I personally prefer a ball-and-socket head with quick release for easy and fast adjustments. My tripod has no center column and the legs spread independently for setup on uneven terrain. The tripod collapses to almost ground level allowing me to explore ground level objects and shooting from different angles and perspectives. It is not too heavy for the longer photo excursions and trips I often pursue in the national and state parks of New England.

As an alternative, I sometimes bring a bean bag that allows me an easy, inexpensive setup at even lower levels then possible with a tripod. I also use it on rocks or positioning a telephoto lens on the hood or the roof of my car. Ready to go bean bags can be found at local photo dealers. You also can fill up your own 1 or 2 gallon size bag or freezer bag with dried beans. Add beans until the bag is nearly full but still flexible. Remove the air, zip up and you are ready to shoot.
