Avoid under sunlight photography:

Your roses should not be attempted to shoot during a sunny day. Wait for an overcast weather; this will help you in getting the right light needed for the photograph and the right picture. If the weather produces no cloud, you can help yourselves with the light of the early morning sun or the evenings.

However, be aware of the shadows at this time. A garden needs a good dose of sunlight, but in case of photography, it may put some limitations as excess sunlight might fail to enhance the details of the subject. 

Close-up shot:

If you want impeccable details in a photograph, then a close-up of those beautiful roses are a must. These bring out the gardening skill, the seasons and the photography skills in an amazing manner to give out the most spectacular close-ups ever. The most delightful picture will be the nature in its bloom and the perfect rose with a few dew drops sprinkled on it.

Placement of the subject:

The proposition though tempting, may not work out always as it is not always required to keep the subject in the centre. There are many possibilities for one to discover the garden in more than one way and from different angles and one must be eager to grasp it. 

Different types of light:

Don’t dither in using your own creativity and imaginations when you have to consider light. Make use of the aluminum foil and reflect the back light, by which you can create shadows on the roses or even stop the light and show them against a black backdrop. These types of innovation can give some of the very prized photographs and give amazing effects too.

Don’t shoot only roses:

Moments are more significant than things but the things are not significant than moments. Moments should be captured as and when they happen that is when the people who adore roses and the roses are together. Many interesting effects can be captured in the process. 

Best results with slow speed film:

As roses are found in many colors, shooting the deep color roses should be achieved with a film of slow speed as they give out great color saturation. Once you try it you can feel the difference of the color.
