Coming to you from The Cooperative of Photography, this awesome video tutorial will show you some great tips and techniques for photographing flowers and plants. The awesome thing about flowers and plants is that there are potential subjects literally all around us, and you do not need to travel far to find worthwhile opportunities. If it is something that really interests you, consider picking up a macro lens. Not only are they wonderfully sharp, making them great for showing off the texture and details of your subjects, their macro capabilities will allow you to create more abstract photos that show off the intricate structure of plant life, letting you get all the more mileage out of a single subject. They also make excellent portraiture lenses if you also shoot those. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
