Photographing intersectional hybrid peonies…


In a previous post I had mentioned the tip if using a circular polarizer filter to make sure you are at a 90 degree angle to the sun when photographing any subject matter and in this case I’m trying to shoot an intersectional hybrid peonies foliage. Now what? I’m sure we all have shots like this especially when the suns angle is lower on the horizon.


Now doesn’t this look better and the depth to the intersectional peony foliage is greater? In sunny conditions, move around your subject to no more than a 45 degree angle to the sun and in this case the intersectional hybrid peony comes alive with color and depth.
