Weekly Photography Challenge – Flowers

Earlier today I shared a bunch of flower photos to brighten your day. I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like flowers, even the roughest toughest guys can appreciate nature’s beauty and splendour.

The weekly photography challenge is flowers.

Now of course it’s your turn. Go find some flowers and photograph them. Go for a walk, find some wild flowers, or visit a garden. You could even think outside the box and make paper flowers or draw some on the sidewalk in chalk. Perhaps you could set up your tripod and do some macro shots and wait for a bee or bug to come along. Try some creative depth of field using a large aperture, or some multiple exposures.

The key of course is using light to your advantage. Show the flower off by backlighting it with gentle evening light. Or use side lighting to pick up extra texture. You’re only limited by your imagination.

Here are a few flowers to get you started:
