Flower Photography Meetup (Orchids) - Buderim - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM - 2 Hours
To make the flower pop we will be using a shallow depth of field. Shallow depth of field keeps the subject of your photo in focus and everything in the foreground or background blurry. We will practice a shorter focus distance to take the emphasis away from certain objects in your frame that is less attractive such as background noise. Lighting is paramount, letís practice aperture, shutter speed while considering composition and the elements that are important for photographing orchids. Hone skills to master when it comes to floral and nature photography.
