Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding a subject for a floral blend image, part of Landscape Photography: Tropical Scenes.
- [Man] I've been searching the garden, looking…for a specific flower or plant that I think…would be a great choice to get depth of field…throughout the entire flower.…So, instead of being very selective about our focus,…we want to try and get perfectly sharp front to back flower.…We also want a very clean background and I've come…across this little kind of green house area where…they've got some different potted plants.…And I have to remind myself that I'm in a garden and…whether something's planted in the ground or in a pot…here, essentially, this is a manicured garden.…
And typically what's grown here is going to be grown…in this environment and so I'm perfectly okay…photographing this plant in the pot.…And what's great about it being in the pot is I can move…it around a little bit.…So, what I've done here is I've moved it away from…the wall so that when I go to photograph it,…you get a soft background.…And as a general rule in photography, the further away…your background, the more wide open you are,…the easier it is to get that beautiful blurry…
