Garden photos

Photographing a garden sounds quite easy and relaxing. But is it so? Capturing the mood and soul of gardens, flowers, trees i.e. is a matter of timing. Like when capturing people. The light is essential, and if you are too late the light and magic disappears.

Many amateur gardens photographers just go close and macro, and thereby find pleasure in the picture. But getting close ups are easy and not enough. Light is essential and that is all about being there at the right moment if not to capture the ordinary. Going for that extra dimension demands that you run out to the garden when the light suddenly shows to be right. Exactly like every time we take a photo, it is all about timing and being aware. Both in b&w and in colour.
