Are you planning a flower field photo shoot this spring or summer season? If so, this blog post is for you!
One of my favorite events during spring is the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The Tulip Festival takes place in Mount Vernon, Washington and last the entire month of April. The festival was founded in 1984 and today feature’s two growers and fields: Roozengaarde and Tulip Town. This year, my friend Maddy from @madcrayy and I met at the tulip fields for a flower field photo shoot.
As we were trying to figure out how skip through the rows of tulips, an idea came to mind.
I realized that needed to write a blog post on how to pose in a flower field!
I’ve been enjoying sharing posing tips this year so I thought this would be a great post to share on Emma’s Edition. So if you’re planning to visit a sunflower field or maybe lavender field this spring or summer season, this blog post was made for you.
Here are 6 Flower Field Photo Shoot Ideas:
1. Walk away from the camera and into the rows of flowers
If you’re attending the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, you technically aren’t supposed to walk into the rows. They had people with flags and safety vest this season waving people out of the rows. You can be respectful of the tulip fields and still get your shot.
Maddy and I didn’t go very far into the rows of flowers but still got a great shot. We had Sam take the photos right outside of the rows to give the illusion that we were deep into the fields. Start in front of the camera and slowly walk away from it. You can turn your had back towards the camera to add variation.
2. Walk towards the camera – and if you’re with a friend, have one person start a step ahead
Another way to add movement to your shot is to walk towards the camera. If you’re posing with a friend, I recommend having one person being a step ahead. Maddy and I played around with both being in the same line and a staggered position, and I liked how the staggered position added depth to the photo.
3. Crouch down close to the flowers
Crouching is one of my favorite poses – I’ve actually featured this pose before on Photography Posing Ideas for Instagram. I didn’t want to sit on the dirt so I ended up crouching to get close to the tulips and add some variety to our photos.
This pose also showed off my spring/summer dress from Lulus! Shout out to Lulus for gifting this Faithfull the Brand Dress!
4. Hold hands
If you’re posing with a friend for a flower field photo shoot, try holding hands in different rows of flowers. I thought this was such a fun shot!
5. Whip your hair back and forth
It takes a couple of tries to get this pose right! We had a lot of outtakes but we ended up getting the “whip your hair” shot. I loved how this photo turned out!
6. Skip through the rows of flowers
The sun was shining, the birds were singing, we were in a flower field and we couldn’t resist skipping through the rows of flowers!
