Behind the Scenes

This how I take my pictures in my back yard; specially pictures of flowers.  I use a plastic stand to place the subjects and use a small shrub as a green background.  During sunny days with hard light, I like to use a white umbrella as a diffuser to create soft light.  It always work.

In order to avoid camera shake, it is sometimes necessary to use a tripod.  When the wind is too strong, then I’ll have to wait until late afternoon or the next day early in the morning.  If I really want to take good pictures, I use a Yongnuo flash as a fill-in light.  That technique usually works well.

Having said this, below is the final result of all this planning and some basic photography accessories.  Voilá!

When I took this picture of a red Petunia, the leaves were beginning to deteriorate.  It is visible in the picture.  Still the core beauty of the flower remains.  Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
