Photo Comments: Don't make the whole photo black to capture a flower with a black background

Photo comment:

There are two problems with the above photo, one is that the overall brightness of the photo is low (underexposure); There is a lot of blank space in the upper left, and the screen has a tendency to fall.

Solution:

When taking pictures of flowers, especially when taking pictures of flowers with a black background, in order to obtain a black background, we do not Be careful and you can reduce the brightness of the entire photo. What should we do? When choosing flowers, the brightness of the flowers we want to choose and the background should be as different as possible (the flowers are particularly bright and the background is particularly dark). The background can be a large area of ​​shadow, a large area of ​​dark color, etc. If we don't have it, we can bring a piece of black paper, or put black clothes behind the flowers as a background. When shooting, you can carefully use spot metering, point the focus point on the flower, be sure to point on the flower, take a picture first, and then increase or decrease the exposure appropriately according to the brightness of the photo. When shooting white flowers, you can increase the exposure slightly, and when shooting dark flowers, you can reduce the exposure slightly. After shooting, remember to check the brightness of the photo. The safest way is to check the histogram of the photo to ensure that the flowers in the photo are not overexposed. This completes the shooting of the flowers with a black background. Composition: In the photo above, we can cut out the excess part of the photo by post-cropping. As shown below. After cropping, the photo becomes fuller. Why does the original image seem to have too much white space on it? Mainly because there is a small flower in the lower left corner of our picture. When the author was shooting, he probably wanted to use the small flowers below as a foil for the big flowers, so as not to make the big flowers feel too lonely. However, it is precisely because of the appearance of the small flowers below that the elements in the lower half of the picture are too many compared to the upper half of the picture, which causes the picture to be uncoordinated. After cropping, the large flowers and small flowers in the photo, one big and one small, one complete and the other incomplete, echo each other to form a diagonal composition, and the composition of the entire photo is coordinated and unified. It looks more comfortable that way.
