Splendid Garden Photos

Looking at splendid garden photos can remind a person of a summer stroll in the garden, which is quite invigorating on a cold winter's night. There is nothing more nutritious than a fresh garden salad made with vegetables grown at home, and photographing these vegetables can be quite delightful. Most people might not be expert gardeners, but many people love fresh homegrown vegetables in salads, pasta sauces, salsas, and spicy potato dishes with organic herbs from the garden. Of course, we should all get more fresh fruits and vegetables in our diet, and there is no better way to do this than to grow these yourself. Some people prefer to leave the gardening to others and just take beautiful photographs, and that is okay, too! Enjoying beautiful garden photography can also be the inspiration for artwork if you enjoy painting and drawing.

Need some gardening advice? Then a book on gardening might also be something most photographers want to read up on because it never hurts to know more about the subjects of the photo shoots. Also, vegetables and fruit trees are wonderful models because they are stationary. Yes, that is a very lame joke, but there is a bit of truth in everything.

The Photo Session Is Not Over!

Yes, there are more delectable and delightful photographs of garden vegetables below. Keep scrolling to see the delicious bounty, but do not drool on the computer screen. Just go make a garden salad when you are finished reading through this hub.

I like how the vine of the tomatoes makes a cross hatched image in this photograph.

In this one I like how the tomato appears to be a lighter shade of red, although it is the same tomato.  There was no photo retouching to achieve that effect.

I love the pictures of nature's bounty -- and the cat too! Maybe you should do photography for $$! I nearly bit into the tomatoes!

That is a good suggestion, and I would definitely sell my photographs to anyone willing to pay :).
