10 Tips For The Lowdown On Nature
Journey into a world of nature that isn't often seen at this level
8 Find the sun. While exposure and flare can be challenging, you can compose dramatic images by shooting low enough to the subject that you can get the sun coming through in the background, such as in this fall maple leaf shot in New York.
9 Use a lens shade if your camera can take one. This isn’t for keeping the sun out, but to keep branches, twigs, grass and other distracting elements away from the front of the lens. All that stuff behind the little red eft in this photo also is in front and to the sides, all able to strike the front of the lens.
10 Use your knee. I’ve taken many a photograph with the camera braced against my knee to help compose a low shot and to stabilize the camera for slow shutter speeds, as in this image of showy trillium in Tennessee.
