Exploration With Photography 2

  1. 1. Exploration with Photography By Faith
  2. 2. Floral Photography Tips taken from SS
  3. 3. White Bloom <ul><li>This picture depicts a completely bloomed Magnolia. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Beading Rain <ul><li>This is a photograph of a pink Hibiscus. On the bottom petals, you can see beads of water that had formed from rain. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: Rain adds a glistening effect to flower petals. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Colorful Surprise in Jungle <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: For environmental plant portraits, you will want more detail so make sure to try larger depth of field. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Two Views in One <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: View point is the most important to the most beautiful floral photography. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Flowers and Bees <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Water Photography Tips taken from MJ
  9. 9. Quiet Reflections <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: In a puddle or lake, take pictures from a low angle to catch reflections in the water.  </li></ul>
  10. 10. Flight of Water <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: Shutter speed can give you varying pictures.  A faster shutter speed will freeze water in time. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Catch the Wave <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: Use a slow speed to blur the waves and a fast one to freeze them in their tracks. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Water Beads <ul><li>With this photograph, I tried to capture the beads on the flower petals of a Hibiscus. They add a very nice glisten. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed: Still life -capture water droplets on flowers or on household objects. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Bubbling Water <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Tip observed and tried with another method: Inside your home - you can photograph a bottle of water with bubbles. </li></ul>
