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.
