Beginner's Guide to Organic Farm Photography
Interested in organic farm photography? Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind for taking unique and original pictures of an organic farm:
Get a bird's eye view.
Climb up to the highest point you can find or just step back and take a wide angle shot.
Try different angles.
Take photos from above, from below, from the right, from the left, from the back.
Get on your knees.
Let your camera see the world from another perspective, for example, as a chicken walking on the grass might.
Get up close and personal.
Go macro. Zoom in and capture minute details of the objects around, such as a flower or leaf.
Keep an eye out for local wildlife (or not-so-wild-life).
Birds, insects, dogs, cats, horses, cows and other animals in the farm can become interesting photography subjects. (I love taking pictures of animals.)
Get some action.
Snap photos of other people as they go about their business in the farm.
Keep an open mind.
You never know what your mind’s eye can see. Unleash your creativity.
You are, after all, in a beautiful organic farm. Breathe in the fresh air and relax.
