We decided to set up a mini photography studio at this club night, the intention to take some good shots of our trees and discuss them as we went along. Conclusions,
the smaller the tree, the easier it is to photograph. I personally prefer a purer white background with the majority of trees – this creates a much crisper image and good contrast between subject and background. If a certain colour background is required later this can always be ‘photoshopped’ in as required. The most difficult challenge when taking photos indoors is lighting, I try to shoot using natural light whenever I can, it produces better results and without loads of expensive photography equipment. One interesting outcome you will probably find by keeping a photographic record of trees is that it makes you aware of its design faults.
