Lights, Camera, Action! Photographing Your Miniature Garden
I must admit I bought the book for the photographs.
I’ve been a lurking fan of David Perry for about two years now. David is a photographer who loves “to have his hands in the dirt and his nose buried in bunches of flowers.” Why wouldn’t I lurk?
David is the photographer behind this delicious book, The 50 Mile Bouquet, Seasonal, Local and Sustainable Flowers by Debra Prinzing, released earlier this year by St. Lynn’s Press. And I must admit, I have yet to get through to the end of the book because his photos inspire the heck out of me! I get an eyeful and I have to stop, grab my camera and go out to the garden to play.
Another source of inspiration has been Kate Baldwin, who helped with some great photos for my book, Gardening in Miniature, from Timber Press. Kate’s specialty is photographing food and, although she shoots just about everything else, it’s her food shots that I pay attention to. These types of photos are taken close up, very detailed and are always staged perfectly. Doesn’t that sound like a way to shoot our miniature garden photos?
