We often enjoy photographing plants located in our gardens, using natural light or a bit of added illumination to show off their beauty. But bringing the flower indoors into a more controlled location has some wonderful options for lighting too, using both natural and added light.
Using the light as a creative tool, you can establish a mood for the botanical portrait. Perhaps you want to convey an ethereal look with soft natural light or drama with a Speedlite. Either way, learn how you can effectively light your flower portraits in creative ways.
