I was at a farmer’s market and saw these sunflowers in peak bloom and wanted a photo. I took a few close-up photos, but I wanted to capture all the flowers, which means I need a good background for the photo.
I do what I always do when taking photos. I looked all around for the best background and spotted the red and white Gingham table Cloth (also called the Farmer’s Weave), which screams summer and picnics to most people (it does for me). However, the standing-up view included cartons of vegetables and people, which I don’t want in the photo. This was when you got to squat for the shot, and sometimes you have to change the angle to get the best view.
Suppose you want some photos of your favorite flowers, head over to your local farmer’s market. The photos are free!
