Best Ideas for Fine Art Floral Photography

I love macro photography. The macro images you see here were taken with a macro lens or tube extension. Sometimes because the flowers were bigger, I took close-up photos by the standard lens, all of which together make up my fine art floral photography portfolio.

I never used the studio because, in other words, I did not own any studio. I took all the photos in nature, in the garden, and in the florist shop.

What makes us like beautiful art photos taken from nature?

Most people like to run away from reality and take refuge in a fantasy world. We often read stories that did not happen in the real world at all or watch fiction.

Creating an imaginary idea in pictures can often be more interesting than reality.

Flowers are beautiful things that make our world attractive. We plant them in the garden or in pots to make our living environment beautiful and fresh with them.

Flower photography attracts a lot of people like me. Having a beautiful poster of plants in the room or on a monitor is uplifting.

The variety of colors and shapes in flowers is a miracle of nature. But when we apply the changes that our mind directs us to that image on the flower, we achieve a fantastic result.

Some people, like me, are not realistic in their photography of flowers, and with a bit of extreme editing, try to create a fine work of art, which is at the same time a combination of macro photography and fine art photography.

As you can see, sometimes editing pictures is excessive. It is one of my characteristics that I enjoy escaping from reality.

Fine art Botanical Photography

Botanical photography is an exciting subject for fine art photography. Plants are abundant in our living environment with various and endless shapes and colors. Flowers always give us a sense of hope for life and enjoyment.

Floral photography tips

You can take some tips to get better quality floral photography.

Lenses for botanical photography

Depending on your gear, you may need to use a lens that allows you to get close to the plant. Maybe use a macro lens, an extension tube, or a regular lens, but the important thing is that it allows you to take high-magnification photos.

Lighting and plant photography

I mostly shoot in natural light. Believe that any kind of natural light, whether under bright sunlight or cloudy weather, is suitable for a particular type of photography that cannot be achieved with other types.

If you are shooting in a studio or a dimly lit room, use several light sources and mirrors. It would help if you minimized shadows.

Problems that make it challenging to do floral photography outdoors

The wind was a nuisance to me most of the time, as it shook the flowers and leaves. The only solution was to use high shutter speeds and continuous shooting.

Rain may not be a problem, and on the contrary, water droplets make the flowers more attractive to take a fine art floral photo.

I am a general practitioner and work in a health center. In previous years, my place of work was rural areas in the northwest of Iran. In addition to medicine in those areas, I also did photography, which was my hobby. I am very interested in macro photography, so most of my portfolio photos are about it. I also visit and photograph historical sites on my travels.
