9 Pictures of Flowers to Brighten your Day

Nature uses flowers to make people smile. When spring arrives and flowers start to bloom toward the sun, it makes a joy settle in me, which is not easily matched by other things. Seeing the flowers start their journey through the season provides a reminder of fresh starts and perseverance.

 

Flowers are special to me and my photography, because they were my first subjects. Because they don’t move, it’s easy to focus and snap a picture. As I think about taking pictures more these days, though, I realize that flowers are hard to capture because of how hard it is to do so in a unique way. There are countless pictures of flowers all over the internet making it hard to bring something new or show someone a flower differently. Instead, I have tried to capture the story of each flower I take or show it in a new light bringing a new realization to someone that looks at one of the pictures.

 

Here are my favorite flower pictures that I have taken. As I continue to grow as a photographer, I hope to learn to capture pictures better than these. As always I would love it if you left me a comment, either about your favorite flower or about my pictures. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
