I shoot with a Canon Rebel T5i, the top was snapped with a 70-300mm lens in my front yard and the bottom with a 50mm prime inside a gift shop in Pawhuska, OK. I’m wondering if anybody has input on how I could have shot these better, or how to frame/compose flower shots better?
That first shot is epic! Great contrasting colors there in the second shot!
> In the “glowing” shot, there is no intuitive subject.
> Try pulling back a bit, including more surrounding foliage to emphasize that “tunnel” feeling, making the tunnel the subject
> Or try zooming in a bit, including less of the framing elements on the right/left/top so that at first look it’s obvious that the flowers at the bottom are the subject.
> This shot is inspiring to me. Makes me want to go out and try the same effect at golden hour on some lilies in Mom’s flower garden.
> In the second shot, it feels as though the Clarity is turned up pretty high, conflicting with the softness of the blurry background.
> There seems to be too much contrast in the background too, making it difficult to intuitively detect exactly what the main subject is, and pull it off the background.
> Just really like the two lone blue roses sitting there in the midst of all the other other-colored flowers. 🙂
