Don't you think that we, the gardening bloggers should be able to take better, more beautiful and stunning photos as compare to cooking bloggers? Look at those cooking blogs - Tiffin Biru, Salam Dua Benua,Jintan Manis, Mamafami dan lain2 lagi blog masakan yang terkenal.di Malaysia.how nice their food photos, jealous kan..I believe most of them have DSLR (and good setting too) kalau takpun close to it..but definitely bukan calang2 digital camera or henpon camera.
.....so keep dreaming about CANON POWERSHOT G12
Lately I like to read and do some research on garden photography, to gain more knowledge and improve my photos inshaallah. Camera juga kena improve tapi belum dapat improve lagi..sabar dulu..heheh.
Ok some tips on how to improve our Flower Pictures :-
(the easiest way to understand for non photographers like us -after so much googling around)
Tip 1: Lighting for Flower Pictures

Tip 2: Level with the Flowers
To get unique and beautiful flower pictures, move around. Don't just stand and shoot it. Try getting on the same level with it, standing above it, or even shooting underneath it. Play with distances of how close or far away you are.
Tip 3: Focus on the Flowers

Tip 4: Keep it Steady
A potentially stunning flower picture can be ruined by something as simple as human nature: the shaky hand. Even if you think your hand is steady, you might be surprised that it does move. Try using a tripod (you can even get a mini tripod if you don't want to lug around a large one.
Tip 5: Add Some Spice to Your Flowers
Don't just shoot the flower, but also look for unique ways to capture the flower or flowers. You can try framing the flower with something natural in the environment, such as dangling vines. You can also look for insects on flowers to make for an interesting flower picture.
