Follow your creative instincts through gardens and along the countryside with your camera at hand. Destination Inspiration, this could be anywhere the flowers grow.

Floral Scenery For A Cause

For your floral photography project you build the scenery with your choices. You might choose to make a statement with a picture of a bumblebee pollinating a flower. A single photograph will remind viewers how vital bees are to the well being of our planet. You could turn your work into an environmental poster to post online or in a printed publication. Perhaps these photos will serve as a message of hope when
you're flipping through your portfolio or accessing personal memoirs.

Capture Special Nature Moments

You can capture an otherwise forgotten nature scene when you're out and about with your camera and you spy a tiny bug resting on a rose in full bloom. The photographer makes their own impressions last a lifetime or longer by capturing the moments that mean the most to them. The number one ingredient is patience. Flowers are at their best right after they bloom, but sometimes it's comforting to appreciate the birthing or blooming process of these blossoms. Not surprisingly, the rose is still lovely long after it's day has come and gone. Dry them in an open room and create a post card memento right there in your sitting room with a few clicks to get it right.

Take advantage of the opportunity to include in your scrap book actual memories of your family working in the garden together. This is a great way to document your progress with your planting while also managing to share a family photo. It could be fun and beneficial to develop an album with pictures of plants in both wild and cultivated varieties. Why not make your very own wildflower identification book? For personal or educational purposes you can do a lot with flower pics. Maybe, in the future you won't need to buy many templates for your scrap booking hobby, because you can design the decorative cut-outs yourself.

Wildflower Photography

Walk around in the spring time and find your inspiration growing in fields and alongside the roadside in your community. It doesn't take long to snap one photograph, but you will probably want several of each plant. With the abundance of wildflowers in the spring you can consider yourself blessed when out in search of photographic opportunities.
