What drew me to flower photography? For one thing, there's no end to learning.... improving your camera and photography skills. And I'm an artistic soul. My photos are the starting blocks for endless creative projects.
There is always a flower nearby,..even one little flower is a miracle of nature. There is no lack of subject material... no need to go chasing down gardens far away.
But most importantly...
I'm in tune with the flowers, I speak to them all the time and when I
listen carefully enough, they answer. They really do! They never seem to
mind my taking their picture or that I take artistic liberty with their images!
Large or small, every garden has a soul and an energy that changes me every time I visit. A garden puts me at peace and in tune with the world again.
Spending time being still. Romancing the flowers. Feeling joyously overwhelmed by the harmony between the garden and myself. Experiencing torrents of creative energy...
And leaving all of life's stresses to evaporate outside the garden gate!
In any garden of the world, I am a much better person.
"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time,
and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time."
- Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)
They're quick, so "flutterography" is a bit different from flower photography... I've got tips to help you!
(Video is a super way to catch these beauties.)
Why not grow a “butterfly friendly” garden or visit a butterfly conservatory to catch these flying flowers on camera!
Butterfly photos are fun to edit with textures and frames, like this Scarlet Mormon!
My goal is to help you with your photography skills and hopefully, coax you into looking at garden and flower photography through new eyes.
