When photographing nature the possibilities are endless. Your subject can range from a single blade of grass to vast elaborate landscapes. Nature pictures are some of the most famous photographs, because they showcase the unique beauty of a particular feature of the natural world as well as evoking a feeling of serenity and absolute splendour for the richness of the world around us.

The amazing thing about nature photography is that there is no limit on the subjects that may be captured. Nature pictures include shots of creatures great and small, rolling hills and beautiful valleys, bare trees and blooming bushes. Whatever your preferred subject, the most effective way to capture a powerful picture in nature is to ensure that the composition is just right. Make use of visual elements such as lines, curves, and patterns to lead the eyes exactly where you want them to focus. Framing a subject well in relation to its background in nature can make the difference between mediocre and spectacular. Additionally, a well-chosen foreground can add depth to the image that helps to act as a point of reference and can really be the wow factor for the picture.

One of the things that most people do not appreciate in nature photography is the lighting. However, this aspect can be used to the greatest advantage to create some of the sharpest images that a photographer will ever be able to capture naturally. The perfect time for capturing amazing natural photographs is not just the “golden hour” right before and after sunrise and sunset; cloud covered days make for greater colour saturation in photographs since the weather allows for diffused light. Even midday can be an excellent time for shooting if you are taking a trek through a heavily wooded area. As with other photography, the lighting is important and even more so for nature photographing where setting up lighting equipment may be impossible. Once you understand the power of lighting, you will be able to create powerful images in nature.

No wrong can come from getting close in nature. There is so much variety in nature that sometimes we miss the little things, which incidentally make the best images. Ignore the never ending field of wildflowers for a moment and zoom in on the butterfly perched on top of a flower. You’ll be amazed at the results. If you can, always try to get closer and zoom in on the little things. As you contemplate the possibility of getting a close up image, think about the perspective. Stepping away from the conventional view can create a completely different and even more powerful image of the same subject. So photograph it from the sides, the top and even from below. Straight ahead is not always the best possible view of a subject.

Unlike many other forms of photography nature is not static but it is easily accessible. This feature as well as the wealth of variety, makes this a great plain for capturing phenomenal photographs.
