field studio flowers
When photographing flowers in the field you do not always have to include the background. For multiple reasons, aesthetic and practical, you may want to do something different, usually a completely white background, which allows you to create a cutout of the flower, like those sought by many image banks, done at the moment of capture.
Meet Your Neighbours
This is achieved through a special technique used in the international project Meet Your Neighbours, which aims to show fauna and flora that by being so close to us we tend to forget. Photographing this way is not just the challenge of learning a new technique, which is cool and adaptable to many other subjects. It is also a way to do something meaningful with your images: maybe organize a slideshow or exhibit in a local school, community centre, and show your human neighbours all the other neighbours living nearby. I bet they will be surprised with the photos of things they know shown against white backgrounds.
