One of the very first images I made with my iPhone 7 Plus. The Housekeeper left this pot of orchids at my desk for my boss to see and all I saw was a pot of guinea pigs for my brand new phone. I turned the pot around so I could photograph the orchids from the back. Image made with the iPhone’s native camera with the Chrome filter.
NOTE TO SELF
- Change your point of view – get down on your knees or sit at the level of the flowers and really observe them.
- Isolate your subject and keep the background out of focus.
- Use contrasting backgrounds – using a background that has a different colour than the main subject helps to define what is important in the picture.
Hat tip to Jose Antunes for the above tips.
