The Nature Photography God has given us is beautiful that adds rich color and scenery with amazing contrast and details. There is all kinds of nature including flowers, macro photography, plants, and water. I enjoy this kind of photography the most because there is so many types of photographs that can be taken. Usually, a wide angle lens works very well. However, a telephoto lens yields some wonderful photographs with rich detail. Planning and thinking is what photography is all about the photos I wish to capture. Many times I have scouted a location keeping in mind when to return under the best lighting conditions. Even when a photograph is taken with one lens, I will use another to capture the different angle of a subject.
When I am planning my photography for nature, I look at the weather, the time of day, and sky conditions although I find that a cloudy day is best with flowers. I have found that any good sky condition has a mixed array of clouds or even storm clouds in some case when it comes to lakes and the ocean. The time of day is especially important because a high sun midday has no good color tones. Late in the afternoon or early in the morning creates great color and shadows produce some really good results, this is really the only time I will go out shooting.
When I do go out for this kind pf photography, I use my full frame camera and a couple of lenses. The favorite is the Canon 24-70mm F/2.8 iii which comes in handy with low light. The other lens I will use is my telephoto Canon 100-400 F/4-5.6 ii because it brings distant mountains in closer while focusing on a subject. Finally, I have the very wide angle 11-24mm lens that creates some unique views.
