Looking for new photo ops? How about your own backyard? In this premium video, Outdoor Photography Guide’s David Johnston gives you 7 tips for backyard shooting:

1. Use just one lens to narrow your choice of photo ops.

2. The “one subject” challenge, focusing on a flower, a tree, or an insect.

3. David suggests searching for repetition, for instance, a clump of wildflowers or forest fern patterns.

4. Use only low perspective, your camera angle low to the ground.

5. Try focusing on only shapes – ovals and angles.

6. Look for abstracts like water reflections.

7. Set a timer for how long you spend in one location.
