Botanicals

Not only flowers but trees, seeds, seed pods, fungi, algae, moss and mildew, fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts, herbs and spices.

Botanicals include any plant, whether native, imported, cultivated, naturalized, or growing wild, at any stage of its lifecycle, alive or dead, fresh or dried, whole, dissected or sliced.

While botanicals are more traditionally photographed as living plants, this is not mandatory. Peppers on your kitchen counter are equally as botanical as the wildflowers growing at the edge of the woods. Botanicals take on new meaning when lighting and composition work hand in hand. Consider the point of view, the composition, and the effect of light to add greater impact to your subject matter. Editing, whether subtle or bold, can take your image to the next level. Let your inspiration be your guide.
