Exploration With Photography 2 Exploration With Photography 2 Presentation Transcript

  • Exploration with Photography By Faith
  • Floral Photography Tips taken from SS
  • White Bloom
    • This picture depicts a completely bloomed Magnolia.
    • Tip observed: It is important to look around and try to find a flower that is completely opened, undamaged, and easily accessible from a good viewpoint.
  • Beading Rain
    • This is a photograph of a pink Hibiscus. On the bottom petals, you can see beads of water that had formed from rain.
    • Tip observed: Rain adds a glistening effect to flower petals.
  • Colorful Surprise in Jungle
    • These white flowers had an intriguing appearance, with bulbous buds. In addition to the closed buds, there was a nice indication of blooming with a surprise look at the inner portion of each bud (yellowish-orange). Also, I was captivated by the landscape surrounding these group of flowers, which contained various forms of vegetation, giving it a jungle-like view.
    • Tip observed: For environmental plant portraits, you will want more detail so make sure to try larger depth of field.
  • Two Views in One
    • With this reddish flower, I attempted to gain two viewpoints in one photo. You can see the side view as well as a look into the inner part of the flower. I also like how some shadow is cast on one of the lower petals.
    • Tip observed: View point is the most important to the most beautiful floral photography.
  • Flowers and Bees
    • With these sets of white blooms, I discovered a few buzzing bees pollinating. I followed this bee for quite a while to capture it on the flower.
    • Tip observed: Try to tell the whole story of the plant and its place in the countryside, not forgetting the pollinating insects buzzing around its petals.
  • Water Photography Tips taken from MJ
  • Quiet Reflections
    • This picture was taken from a small pond on campus. I liked how the stillness of the water allowed me to get an accurate view of the trees surrounding it.
    • Tip observed: In a puddle or lake, take pictures from a low angle to catch reflections in the water. 
  • Flight of Water
    • With this fountain picture, I wanted to capture the water in mid-air with all of the portals gushing water. I did this by using a faster shutter speed. I like how the drops are suspended.
    • Tip observed: Shutter speed can give you varying pictures.  A faster shutter speed will freeze water in time.
  • Catch the Wave
    • In this photo, I tried to capture small waves in a pool as well as the reflection of the light on the water. I used a faster shutter speed to attain this view.
    • Tip observed: Use a slow speed to blur the waves and a fast one to freeze them in their tracks.
  • Water Beads
    • With this photograph, I tried to capture the beads on the flower petals of a Hibiscus. They add a very nice glisten.
    • Tip observed: Still life -capture water droplets on flowers or on household objects.
  • Bubbling Water
    • Because I had difficulty capturing water bubbling in a water bottle, I tried to capture bubbles forming as the water from the faucet made contact with the sink.
    • Tip observed and tried with another method: Inside your home - you can photograph a bottle of water with bubbles.
