A photographer offers suggestions about taking photos of flowers

As the snow melts across the northern part of the country, springtime is approaching. Seasonal spring flowers are popping up, and some individuals may wish to know how to take artistic photographs of these flowers.

According to PCWorld, there are several different approaches to shooting flowers. One of them discusses keeping the flower in focus. In some cases, it may be desirable for the background to blurry. There are features on certain cameras that fill up the frame with only the flower, keep everything clear, or allow the background to appear out of focus.

The elements around the flower can also become an issue before snapping the first shot. Even though the flowers will stay stationary, a photo can be altered by a small gust of wind. The news source suggests bringing something that could block the breeze.

A photographer from Silver Spring, Maryland recently won awards for her photographs of spring flowers. Iris Posner won first and third place in the 5th Annual Washington Gardener photo contest for garden views and garden vignettes, according to the Silver Spring Patch.
