Flower Power

It's spring and it will soon be summer in a couple of weeks.  Colors line highways, parks, cities and gardens.  Flower photography season is on us offering a rainbow of vibrants to pastels.

Photographing flowers ranges from honing in on the tiniest detail to capturing a collection of color, shapes and movements.

All that is needed is your lens in hand, a quick study of your subject to find the single point of interest or convey an overall story.

From macros using a Nikon 105mm:


To a telephoto perspective with a Nikon 70-200mm:


To using primes - like the nifty Nikon 50mm:


And short range zooms such as the kit Nikon 24-85mm lens:



Nature provides the color, you provide the perspective using your lens of choice and tell the story.  Happy Shooting!
