How to Photograph Flowers With Items From Around Your House

If you are stuck at home and itching to practice your technique and explore your creativity a bit, you might have to get a bit clever with your use of materials and choice of subjects. This great video tutorial will show you how you can photograph flowers using just materials you have lying around your house.

Coming to you from Chris Sale, this excellent video tutorial will show you how you can set up a flower shoot with just materials around your house. All you need are a window, some kitchen supplies, and of course, a flower. I always enjoy these sorts of shoots. Of course, with traditional photographic equipment, the path to such images is a bit clearer, but what I enjoy about these sorts of shoots is the sheer ingenuity involved. I find the problem-solving aspect of it all rather fun and addicting. That being said, even if you do not enjoy that part of it, simply practicing that sort of problem-solving can have a positive impact on your work in more standard arenas, and given the current situation, there really is no better time to give it a try. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sale.
