The shooting of flower is an unavoidable topic for photography lovers. It is an essential step to a success photographer. Considering the superb color of follower, many things you should take into consideration including light, time, location, and so on. Flower shooting doesn't need to change the lens. Canon 60D kit 18-135 lens can be a good choice. Shooting flowers need macro, you just need to adjust the mode or modify shutter before taking a picture mode. Things you need to prepare: Canon 60D kit 18-135 lens, SLR cameras, large-capacity memory card, flash bulb, Tripod Find a view. Generally, to get flower shoot, the photographer can choose distant location to take flowers. That means you can take a total shoot of the panoramic picture first, then you can go near and take the shoot of you target. So people not only can have a look of the scene, but also the details of the glasses and flowers. Depth of Field To get a close-up photo, you need to understand the impact of the aperture for depth of field. The f/1.8-4.5 aperture is large aperture; f/11-16 aperture small aperture, depth of field size marked on the lens. Take the example of 50 mm lens, for a 4 inch target, aperture of f / 4 shooting, resulting depth of field of about 6 inches, that is the focus of pre two inches and follow four inches. If shot with f/16 aperture at the same distance, resulting depth of field is about 24 inches, which is the focus of pre eight inches follow 16 inches. Therefore, with a small aperture can be a clearer scene. According focus distance to view the depth of field, even use a small aperture, the depth of focus is very small. Small subjects, such as the butterfly fall on the flowers. It is enough to make it in the focal plane with a large aperture. There are two advantages: 1, With a large aperture, even with slow chip can also using a fast shutter speed to condense the action. 2 Make the exclude background clutter out of the focal plane. The technique is called separation of this prominent main focus. Mostly photographers often used this technique to eliminate the clutter background, in order to highlight the subject, especially when they need to take the shoot of a follower or glass. In general, the photographers prefer to shoot a flower as the background, so that the foliage mixed together. The disadvantage of this condition is that the target is not highlight enough. Shooting tipsPhotographer should be patient to observe around. A large aperture is recommended to highlight the most beautiful part. With separate focus and the long focal length lens, you can shoot a beautiful the word, you can use flash to highlight the subject and leave the dark background underexposed. There are many rich-effect photos adopted by photography magazine, although it is the night the effect that seems not very natural. Use a small aperture and flash to take close-up shots. As the most of time, I'd prefer to make a animation after a shooting travel. For this purpose, a lot of images may be taken. So the prepare works should well. Do backup and clean your SD storage before the travel. Have done your animation with Flash Video Editor? The FLV video may be not compatible with many portable devices and software, which means you may need to convert flv to avi or any other format videos with an flv to avi converter.
