If I were to be perfectly honest, up until recently I would tell you that I am not a huge fan of flower photography.
Let me explain as I do in other scenarios when talking about this subject. And then I’ll explain how it has helped me with inspiration.
Answer this Question:
How many exact photos can you recall of flowers?
The reality is for most of us flower photography can be big blur and recalling an exact picture is from a sea of images of variations of the same things over and over is actually difficult. So I never really got that excited about the thought of flower photography (but never think I hate it, just shy away because it doesn’t stand out).
This line of thinking has been a source of inspiration for me. Because maybe as a photographer we can further push outside the normal and even above average perspective of flowers. Or at least try to go above what we normally see in flower photography.
Therefore I will begin to add more flower images to my gallery. I hope you enjoy them, I am actually slightly addicted to this. Continually striving for a “wow” effect.
