Tips for lotus flower photography
Photographing lotus flower that grows in water requires a sharp focus and a rock-still camera. It is the most crucial tip in flower photography since even tiny lapses in focus can spoil the photograph because of the small depth of field.
Often it is said that while photographing flowers, macro photography provides a shallow depth of field, which is the part of macro-photography. So, even one millimeter of camera shift after the camera focuses on the subject can make the details of the flower get lost.

Another important thing is that the flower should be in diffused light and there should be no breeze. The still golden hours in the morning are the best time for such photography.

Once you have provided a firm rest to the camera either by using a tripod stand or placing the camera on something and achieved the focus on the identified point of interest on the flower, use a timer release or cable release to open the shutter by keeping the shutter speed high and bigger aperture.

Using a flash is something to experiment with a diffuser to make the pictures look natural. The option of a macro lens attachment also allows closer focusing. Sometimes going closer and focusing in on a part of the flower can create wonderful and unusual images. Even zoom in on a single flower with an absolutely still camera and flower can provide a great shot.
