Birds in Vevey, Lac Léman, Switzerland (Suisse)

I went to a Photo Bourse in Vevey, Switzerland, and I found one of the very few remaining Minolta 28-70mm f2.8 G, a real masterpiece. I was walking back to my car when I saw a few birds facing the lake. I needed to test my lens, and the occasion was perfect. The results is sharp, with a very good and warm balance of colors. Hope you like it!

Morges Fête de la Tulipe, Switzerland (Suisse) - 75 photos + 5 tips to take great flower pictures

Morges Fête de la Tulipe (Tulip Festival) - 40 years and 200’000 bulbs in Morges 2010 edition

The Fête de la Tulip in Morges is happening every year during March-April, for the last 40 years. Around 100’000 bulbs are seed in the Parc of Independance, where the Morges river is ending in the Geneva lake, next to the Castle. The organisators have seed 200’000 tulip bulbs this year, which is probably one of the largest tulip festival in the world, with dozens of multi color variants. Thousands of people come visiting it every day, and depending of the weather, the flowers can last up to 5 weeks! 

5 Tips to take great and spectacular flower pictures

Taking great pictures of flowers has always been one of the main reason to purchase a camera for many of us! Flower photos in the magazines and on websites always look full of colors, saturated and have a peaceful ambiance. However, when back at home, the results might not be always as expected. You don’t necessarily need an expensive macro lens, actually a zoom with fast aperture can really give dramatic effect (for info, most of the below photos have been taken with Minolta 80-200 HS G f/2.8). Here are a few tips and advises that might help you make the photos looking really gorgeous and spectacular as the 75 pictures of tulips you can see below:

  1. Shoot horizontally your flowers: many people I see taking pictures of flowers do it with a vertical angle, standing right in front of it. This gives no perspective to the flowers, and you will have very flat render. You need to get yourself at the same level as the flowers, and shoot on a horizontal perspective your subject, like doing portrait. You might have to be on your knees most of the time, so be prepared and do not wear a white trouser!
  2. Arrange the scene to be spectacular with a clean background: have a flower in focus and play around it (rule of third, diagonal…), especially if you have a clean and bright background this will help you a lot to emphasize the scene and glorify it.
  3. Play with zoom, DOF and light: you need to masterize the aperture of your lens, which will blur the background and help you realize the tip #2. Macro lens or tele-zoom (starting at 70mm) might really help you here, and to get great perspective don’t hesitate to go up to the maximum of your lens (200-300mm). Make sure your subject (the flower!) is sufficiently lightened so the render will be even more spectacular. Be careful of too bright light, especially on white flowers, it will just burn the petals.
  4. Look around you to compose the scene: flowers are beautiful, and most of the time deserve to be the only subject of the photo. However do not forget that what’s around you might also give fantastic scene, where the flower will just be an element that will sublimate the overall picture, being on the first or secondary plan.
  5. Do not over saturate the final results: make sure when finalising the render on your computer that the flower colors are not over saturated (red and orange are typically the most sensitive), and that you still have enough details in the the white petals.

Reed on the Geneva Lake, Switzerland

Reed plant

A simple picture of a reed plant on the Geneva Lake (Lac Léman). I particularly liked the soft and subtle tones of grey and sand colors that the plant had in this cold winter weather.

A view on the Leman (Geneva Lake), from Morges, Suisse (part II)

Français

Voici une autre vue depuis Morges (Suisse) du Lac Léman. C’est en fait une interprétation plus ancienne que j’ai faite de cette scène, avec des couleurs un peu plus saturées et chaudes. J’avais fait cette photo lors d’un test du Sony A700 il y a environ un an. Cet appareil photo délivre des photos avec une gamme dynamique déà très large, ce qui permet de faire du HDR avec un simple RAW démultiplié en 3 expositions. J’espère que vous appréciez la vue, et pour une vue paysage avec des wallpapers à télécharger, alors n’hésitez pas et allez voir mon précèdent post sur la vue du lac Léman depuis Morges (Suisse).

English

Here is another view from Morges (Suisse), on the Leman (also called the Geneva Lake in English). It’s actually an older HDR interpreation of this scenery, with more saturated colours. These picture is actually a bit older, and was part of the test I’ve made of my Sony A700 about a year ago now. This camera actually delivers very nice large dynamic range picture which delivers great HDR with a single RAW exposure. I hope you appreciate the view, and if you want some landscape wallpaper, don’t hesitate to go and download on View on the Geneva Lake from Morges (Suisse).
