Just about everyone has plants near by or maybe even in your home to photograph. By studying the plants and looking for lines and patterns within those plants, you can create some great art work. Here is a plant I found in a botanical garden, which are great places to find lots of interesting plant life. I’ll show more examples of creating great art with plant life in future posts.
Rather then photograph the whole plant or parts that may include the cluttered background, I moved in close with the camera and captured the interesting lines of the plant. I use a Nikon D7000 with my Tamron 18-270 lens. Because this area I was shooting had a lot of depth, I used my highest f/stop at f/32 to get it all in focus. Remember, the larger the f/stop number you use, the larger amount will be in focus.
