Flower photography feeds both my nature addiction and my creative side. Since I'm so artistically inclined, my photos supply the raw material for some awesome photo editing time. Photoshop, Lightroom and onOne are my three photo editors of choice!
You don't need to take the entire day off to get to a garden. There is always a flower nearby. Even one little flower can be the star in a successful photo shoot.
A lot of the time I meditate before I go to scout out the best places to photograph. After I've soaked up the energy, all sorts of creative ideas come to me for images that I think would tell a unique story about that particular garden.
Here's a short video that tells you how I feel about various flowers and several gardens throughout the world. The majority have textures that add my personal artistic touch... and a few short garden videos as well.
Thanks to Bogdan Lucian for his After Effects template. Check out more of his work here.
The music is Colors by Pink Zebra. If you need music for your projects, look right here.
"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time,
and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time."
- Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)
They're quick, so "flutterography" is a bit different from flower photography... I've got tips to help you capture them - on camera that is!
(Video is a super way to snag these little beauties.)
Butterfly photos are fun to edit with textures and frames, like this Scarlet Mormon!
