Spring has sprung creating new and unique opportunities for photography, especially for landscape and nature photographers. Spring marks the beginning of new things- flowers blooming, wildlife being born or emerging from hibernation, and children emerging from the indoors to play in the sunshine once again. Dust off your camera gear and try out these photography ideas you need to try this spring!
Rain is an inevitable part of spring. Why not embrace it? Capture kids jumping in puddles, or the large splash created as cars pass through standing water on the street. Not a fan of getting your camera gear wet? No problem. You can still capture photos of the rain from inside by shooting drops on your window. Experiment with your focus settings to get creative with your background and foreground.
You know what they say about those April showers. Spring is the perfect time to capture spectacular images of flowers. You can shoot close up macro photos of Daffodils by attaching a macro lens to your camera from Buydig.com. Capture the details from the petals to the pollen. You may come across a field of tulips and decide to use your wide-angle lens to capture the vastness of the landscape. The great thing about photographing flowers in the spring is that you usually don’t have to look far to find some of these blooming beauties. Your city parks probably have plenty of flowers already in bloom. You can also check out river and creek banks, or just walk out your back door into your own backyard.
Streams, rivers and waterfalls flow faster and make for better subjects in the spring. Use a neutral density filter to slow down your shutter speed for a longer exposure. You won’t even have to leave your house to capture a few different types of birds.
Nothing literally sings spring more than birds. If you are already into bird photography, then this is an especially exciting time of year for you! If you’ve never tried bird photography before, then spring is the perfect time to start. The best time to set out on your search is at sunrise. Just be sure to set your shutter speed on your camera from Buydig.com to 1/1000s or higher to freeze the action.
Nothing screams warmer weather more than beach photography. Getting out to the shore during the spring months will allow you to capture some breathtaking images before the crowds swarm the beaches in June. Also, photographing on the beach in the spring allows for more flexibility on the time of day you take your full sunlight shots. The sun isn’t shining down quite as harshly during the spring months.
Now that winter is finally over, grab your camera gear and get out and enjoy the extra hours of sunlight and warmer weather.
