Professional plant photography in 4 steps
1. All about perspective
If you go to your account and take a good look at all your photos you will get a good picture of your favorite perspective. Do you only take photos at your own height? Then you’re not the only one! Still, it is interesting to use a different perspective. Get down on your knees for a picture, or look it up. Or how about a close-up? Provide as much variety as possible.
2. Different leaf types
When photographing plants, it is nice to vary the type of plant. But even more fun is to put several leaf species next to each other. Think of a succulent plant in combination with an ornamental Monstera or a sturdy Dracaena. The right contrast makes your photo extra special.
3. Filters and settings
Do you like to use a filter? Then be consistent! Keep in mind that not every filter fits every photo. A good tip is not to let the filter cover 100%. Go for 50%, or play with contrast and brightness. As long as you keep about the same settings, your feed will become one whole.
