Photos of the Week: THE ART OF FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHY !

Taking photos of flowers is something that everyone loves. But, there is an art to taking good photos of flowers. Ideally, you would want some type of close-up system, either a macro lens, close-up filters, or extension tubes. And it seems the good photographers have realized that you need to have the depth of field just perfect. So, let’s take a look at these amazing flower photos:

As a photographer, you have many choices to take in flower photography. This type of flower is generally called “wild flowers”, and often will grow anywhere their seeds will drop. This is something that attracts bees and birds as well.

Taking photos of flowers in a setting of “still photography” is real popular for the art lover. Having flower petals just adds to the photo.

Do you want to get into real art with flowers, do your own setup of a “still photo” like the one above. Can you see that hanging on your wall?

To add extra story to a flower photo, a bee is the key. Also, notice in this flower photo that it follows the rule of thirds. It’s like the flower has space to grow into.

One thing that flower lovers are looking for, is a new color to see. If you can find flowers with unique color and lighting, you have a winner.

There are many ways to take photos of flowers. In their natural habitat is a great way to do it, especially if you can have the sunshine light up the flowers. This is a bit tricky, so if you want to do this, make sure you have the right exposure on the flowers.

If you can get a good photo, like this one, you appeal to the flower people as well as the animal or bird lovers. This photo is not an easy one to take. Hats off to James Wainscoat.

This type of flower photo is really popular because it shows the living area that they are in, giving you the feel of the surroundings. Looking through magazines, you will see this type of photo if you are being introduced to a particular home or area.

People and flowers interacting can be nothing but special for the people involved in the photo, or their family and friends.

Flowers in harsh environments are especially unique, because flowers just don’t usually like this kind of weather. So, capture it for something unique.

What is the main subject in this photo? The butterfly or the flower? I’d say both, and each subject compliments each other. That pose of that butterfly is perfect. Love it.
