It’s always wise to work your subject with multiple compositions. In this video, professional photographer Tony Sweet photographs rudbeckia flowers with a 105 lens from multiple angles and also with a Lensbaby. For maximum sharpness, you will learn to shoot with your lens on the same plane as your flower, using the proper camera settings for optimum results. You will also learn tips on how to compose a round flower into the rectangular camera format.

Tony then demonstrates the Lensbaby, which he calls a great flower lens for bokeh effects. Going handheld, he employs selective focus at ISO 400 to create an edge blur around the yellow flower petals.
