Title: Using photos for plant ID
Taking photos of our plants is sometimes a challenge, particularly when we want to post them for others for identification. They may be indoors, in poor light, in a difficult or awkward location or position. Our goal should be to obtain a photo with as much detail as possible.
One common problem seems to be that photos come out too dark, with insufficient detail. Using a flash isn’t always the answer, as it can give a washed out appearance. A technique which I often use is to use my photo editing software (Photo Studio – a very simple program which came with my scanner) to take a dark photo and increase the brightness. See how this technique has modified 2 photos recently posted for ID. The “new” photos make not make the ID, but there is a lot more with which to work.
