Wildflower Photo Tips
Photographing wildflowers requires special equipment. A 35mm single lens
reflex (SLR) camera is ideal for this purpose. When photographing wild-flowers,
the sturdy support provided by a tripod is needed. A flash is often required
for taking good shots. A through the lens (TTL) flash eliminates exposure guesswork.
Other items to consider are extension tubes for closer focusing, teleconverters
for increasing the focal length, and a special lens, such as a zoom, a zoom
and/or fixed macro, or a two-element close-up lens.
