2 shoots with Emma Sousa to mark her epic rebranding.
At a recent shoot, Caroline Oleron (Cherfold Flowers) asked me to explain my settings and why she should get a tripod. It's all useful information, so here goes:
1. Low ISO, 100 or 200.
2. Pick your aperture for the depth of field you want: the photo above was f11.
3. Let the camera choose the shutter speed (in this photo it was 1/2 second).
4. Manually focus.
5. Use a tripod (or a chair, or a pile of books) and the self timer.
Read on for the detail.
This photo of tulips and hellebores is my favourite from this month. And it was a bit of an accident - underexposed, white balance a bit off, and aperture left on 1.4 from a previous photo. But I just love it.
March this year had puppies in flower crowns, macro galore, and my first tentative steps in actual flower arranging.
