Your ability to capture nature is what gives you peace and comfort. But if you want to make the most of your talent, you have got to try these nature photography tips. Let’s give you a few ideas and a lot many reasons to get inspired.

Slow Down The Shutter Speed With Water Bodies:

If you use a professional-grade camera or DSLR, you know what the shutter speed can do for the final output. When you are shooting water bodies such as a fountain or river, slowing down the speed of the shutter can do wonders for your image. It is going to create a very smooth effect which is going to appear almost velvety. The flowing water is going to look pristine white and beautiful and the sky will be subtle and almost magical. The trick here is to keep your camera absolutely still. Either you will have to practice with your hand or should look for a tripod or a selfie stick that can do the job.

Look For The Sunrise:

The perfect time to click a beautiful nature scene is the wee hours of the morning. That’s right. This is when you can catch a beautiful sunrise at the spectacular Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh and the nearby area as well. The Rock Garden is also a great place to capture nature shots. There is a special emphasis on this time window of the day because the lighting is very soft and more than manageable. This means that you will not end up with harsh highlights and sharp shadows that are difficult to compose if you use any post-processing software on your images. Also, the bright light of the sun is going to ruin your HDR, especially if you are using a smartphone.

Use The Telephone To Lens Intelligently:

People often find it very difficult to use their telephoto lenses intelligently. If you want to get rid of any clutter or let’s say that you are about to explore Chandigarh Bird Park, you can zoom ahead of the branches and click the perfect shot of the bird every time. The telephoto lens allows you to get closer to the object without losing any detail in the image. These can be used to focus on the object more efficiently. For example, if you want to click the perfect shot of a tiny mushroom growing at the top of a branch, your hand might not be able to reach it but your telephoto lens can.

A Flower Petal Is A Great Filter:

People always use objects such as a dream catcher or a flower or probably a close-up shot of a leaf in their perspective. The trick is to include it but keep the focus on the object in front of it. For this, you will have to practice a very steady grip with your camera. Also, you will have to make sure that the lens does not lose focus on the object of interest. Therefore it is a good decision to disable the macro mode on your camera or phone. This way you can keep the petal or any other object in the perspective and very much close to the lens without losing focus.

In conclusion, we can say that nature photography gives you a lot of freedom. You can play with the light and also with the wide-angle settings and exposure buttons. The tips mentioned above were a few ways to play with your camera and get the most inspiring shots for your collection. By using these tips, you can sharpen your skills to capture smallest raindrop sitting on leaf, dramatic landscapes, experiments with the sunlight, tree canopies from different angles, star photography, three dimensional effect for flowers and add details, and many more.
