Remember my post about making your own backdrop? Thanks to some workshop students, I have photos showing it’s use in an outdoor setting.
It can also be useful to have fabric with you when photographing flowers outside. In this shot, I had a beautiful rose blooming in my yard but as you can see, behind the flower was a wrought iron fence and my neighbor’s side yard. I simply draped the black cloth over the fence and had an instant backdrop.
Sometimes it’s difficult to find simple backgrounds when you are outside, but being creative and carrying around a few simple props can go a long way
