When you are given a gorgeous bouquet of anniversary flowers or tulips for Valentine's Day, it is only natural to want to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. .
Changing the water and trimming the stems can only take the arrangement so far, so if you really want to make a lasting memory, it is best to take a picture.

Flowers are not the most difficult subject to photograph, which is good news for shutterbugs and photo rookies alike. With just a few easy tips, you will likely be pleased with the way your camera was able to capture the essence of your flowers.

According to the Digital Photography School, you should first consider what you want the focal point of the photo to be. Are you enthralled by the texture of the petals on those Valentine's Day roses? Perhaps the arch of the stems is your favorite part. Whatever it is, make sure to focus on that as you compose the shot.

You also want to consider whether the flowers look better in a horizontal or vertical frame, and what you should crop out. Moving distractions like clutter on the table can also transform the photo.
