Some garden photography tips for beginners
For a beginner, the garden photographic tips are related to composing, exposing and camera setting with position and tilt. For composing the garden picture look for some interesting foreground and adjust your body position relative to the subject to get the background. It has been seen that, if you stand at a higher position, the background will form the flower beds and the soil.

If you keep the camera at the eye level, the background may be flowers, greenery, fencing, boundary wall and even sky with a tilt. Understand that good composition begins with the way you arrange the visual elements of design like line, shape, color, light, texture and pattern.

Generally during the golden hours and good diffused light, pay attention to F-stop control. Use 1/500 at F5.6 to get subject sharp and making the backgrounds a bit soft. The photography rule is that if you want something in the garden to stand out, try to get a fuzzy background. If the subject is light have a dark background.

For soft color backgrounds shooting with the lens at a large aperture of f2.8, 4 and 5.6 for limiting the depth of field is recommended. Also, follow the principle of Lines, if the garden has paths since lines leading to the subject help create an illusion of depth to direct the viewer's attention.

Remember, good composition begins with the way you arrange the visual elements of design; line, shape, color, light, texture and pattern. Look for, and emphasize them whenever you take a photograph.

Lines and paths into photos can be actual or implied. The eye follows either one with equal ease. Paths and visual stepping stones can lead the eye into the composition. Good composition is essential to interesting photographs.
