If you have a garden that you're proud of but are struggling to take the perfect shot to enter our Calor Gardens competition, worry no more. We have put together some very simple, but effective, photography tips to help you capture your garden in all its beauty!

• You don’t need a fancy camera; these days most smart phones have a decent enough camera with plenty of features.  

• Think about the composition on the photo – what do you want to include? Should it be a close up shot, or do you want to capture a wider shot of your whole garden? 

• Consider all angles, be experimental! 

• Landscapes – Draw the eye in to the centre point with leading lines such as hedges or pathways.

 • Depth of field – a blurred background can be a beautiful effect when shooting in the garden! – Make sure you choose what you want to be the focus point in the image. 

• Look for different textures.

• Colour – a contrast looks beautiful and creates a huge impact. – Remember, bold, bright and light areas attract the eye, so think about the focus point of the image. 

There's not long left to enter our #CalorGardens competition, it's very easy to enter: Simply submit an image of your beautiful rural garden, using the hashtag #CalorGardens, to be in with a chance of winning up to £150 gift voucher.

Competition closes at midnight on Monday 5th August. The lucky winner will be featured in our statement insert and on our social channels.
