1. Make the most of your natural surroundings. No matter where you live you can always find nature if you go out and explore your environment.

2. Shoot in soft natural light to capture the delicate beauty of your subjects. Overcast days provide a soft diffused light, and the golden hours around sunrise and sunset create a lovely warm glow.

3. Get up close to capture the intricate detail of small subjects such as flowers, leaves and insects. Using a macro lens allows you to take incredible close-up shots that capture tiny details.

4. Use simple backgrounds to make your subject stand out. If the background is distracting, shoot from a low angle so you can use the sky as a plain backdrop behind your subject.

5. Use burst mode for the best chance of getting good shots of moving subjects such as birds, animals, or plants swaying in the wind.

6. Shoot in different seasons and weather to capture the unique qualities of nature throughout the year.

7. When editing your photos, use subtle filters and adjustments to preserve the natural beauty of your subjects.
