Looking for interesting details for photos
Anyway, even if you have been to a place many times, there are always interesting details to look for there that you might not have seen before.
First, you know how much I like framed photos. Here are a couple of examples. I used the barn above to frame the farmhouse in the background. Below, the farmhouse is framed by a tree and fence post.
One of my lovely readers let us know that the purple ground cover weed was hen bit. She also asked for suggestions for taking photos in gardens. I would say the same things hold true for gardens as anywhere, plus, take the sign photos of plants that you don't know for future reference. Look for the blooms with the best lighting, get down low at the level of the flowers rather than from above as much as possible and get the big picture as well as the closeups. When possible include a shot that has the leaves as many plants are identified by the leaves as much as the bloom. She is a master gardener, so she knows much more about plants than I do. The big thing with photography is practice, practice, practice. Take you camera with you to everyday places you go.....like the farm! There are great subjects around us all the time!
