The temperatures are warming up, the days are getting longer and the flowers are just beginning to make their entrance into the world. Spring flowers offer a magnitude of photography ideas and are the perfect subjects because they don’t move or blink! Here are some great ways to capture the true beauty of spring through your camera’s lens.
Focus On Color
Flowers come in a wide array of gorgeous colors. Highlight their beauty against a blank background so they can show off their wares. (Photo Credit: Pink Sherbet)
Up Close and Personal
Don’t worry about always getting the whole flower in the picture, focus on the petals or insides of the flower for a more interesting capture. (Photo Credit: Mary Foster)
Nature provides the perfect accents for your flower photos. Ladybugs, butterflies and bumble bees all make great subjects with a good distance lens. (Photo Credit: 366 Photography)
The tress and the sunlight make a perfect canopy of color. While photographing in direct sunlight can be difficult, this is a great example of the harsh sunlight working in your favor. (Photo Credit: Racey)
Adding a prop to your flower photo is as easy as it sounds. Pick some wild flowers and place them in a vase or throw a few daisies in your bicycle basket to add some flare to your flower photos. (Photo Credit: Style Me Pretty, Cherry Bam)
Point of View
Get down on the ground, lay on your back, look up at a flower; by changing your point of view you will capture completely different characteristics of the flower. (Photo Credit: The Enchanted Home)
Not all flowers have to be sprouting from the ground. I really like the depth this photo has with the hanging vases, yet the focus is only on one. (Photo Credit: Style Me Pretty)
The innocence of a child is a beautiful thing. Add that with the beauty of spring flowers and you have a winning combination. (Photo Credit: Elena Komienko)
Water if the perfect accent to any flower photo. Whether it is dew, rain or man-made, water is an instant eye catcher. (Photo Credit: Lovelie Greenie)
Pops of Color
Look for pops of color. Whether it is a single flower against some greenery or a rogue red flower in a field of yellow, pops of color make for great captures. (Photo Credit: Cherry Bam, Sylwia Urbaniak Photography, Sarah Raven)
