Follow these 3 easy tips to take good photos of flowers:

1. Control the depth of field

Try setting the aperture around the f/22 range to capture a long view of a field of flowers. This will give you a broader depth of field with a wider view.

2. Low ISO settings

A low ISO will yield to the highest detail and clarity of the flowers you are taking photos of. If you mix a low ISO with a lower aperture setting you may need a slower shutter speed, so have your tripod handy.

3. Try macro photography

A very creative way to shoot flowers is by creating photo in which the composition of one single flower fills the frame, if you don’t have a macro lens try using your camera’s macro setting. Extension tubes or close-up filters will show outstanding details and textures.
