There’s a lot of beautiful red tomatos and green lettuce to take photos of in a greenhouse. Just remember that they aren’t the only photogenic thing that’s contained in that greenhouse. By taking photos of the things surrounding your subjects, you develop a better overall eye and will be able to pick out these details next time you’re out shooting. You’ll also find that if you’re ever thinking of putting together a series of photos that work as a story, these types of shots will be invaluable for providing context for the viewer.
