New photographers tend to photograph things around them. You get that new camera. You walk outside. Your eyes cast themselves at what is around you, if only to see if that paragraph you just read on how to set your aperture, shutter speed and ISO really works.
Ah ha! There it is. A beautiful flower, just waiting to become an image on your desktop. You take the shot, no, several, … and then unload the disk to your computer.
Only later you hear other photographers say, “…stop photographing flowers – unless you have a really great image! If you are not sure, go to 500px.com and check out what a great flower shot should look like.”
I say, phooey! Here’s to photographing beautiful flowers in Spring!
