Backyard Photography

Backyard Photography

When the weather warms up and things start to grow, we have more to photograph in our own backyard, or neighbourhood. In this tutorial we'll briefly discuss:
  • Subject selection
  • Creating interest
  • Avoiding distracting elements

How to choose your subject

  • Go in with an objective. What story do you want to tell? Having an objective will help create emotion in your picture. 
  • Look for new things in familiar surroundings.
  • Find interesting flowers and leaves. Try taking a collection of plant life in a single colour scheme, or a set of interesting shapes

  • Look up into trees. Don't limit your creativity to what's just in front of you. What can you see above you that would make a great picture?

  • Look down for fungi and moss. The smaller plant life make great subjects for practicing macro!
