Book Review: The Art of Flower and Garden Photography

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Just seeing the stunning photograph on the cover of The Art of Flower and Garden Photography  should be enough to encourage you open up the book and read it.   The pages are filled with even more beautiful images of gardens and flowers.  The bonus is that the book also gives detailed instructions on how to create beautiful garden images yourself.  The author uses both film and digital cameras and all the photos have all the relevant shot information listed beside them for reference, including location and camera settings.  He breaks down all the key elements of a good shot with chapters covering light, color, weather, etc.  He states that most of his best images are taken at sunrise and encourages you to seek that beautiful morning light.  This book gave me fresh inspiration for taking photographs of my own garden, but I have yet to get up before sunrise. :)
