Tip of the Week: Capture Your Home Plants

 

Plant photography is arguably the easiest type of photography, for two main reasons. Firstly, you can practise it anywhere you see greenery. Secondly, you will not have to go through the trouble of explaining the poses that you want to your subject. You can begin by focusing on the form. Some leaves and petals have unique shapes, which can give you a lot of room to experiment with your composition. With backlighting too, you can try to achieve beautiful silhouette shots of these shapes. Apart from this, you can also look for simple symmetries like two leaves coming out of either side of a stalk, or equal number of petals on a flower. Subjects like these are perfect for visually strong compositions.
