When you are taking pictures of flowers, you have to look out for flowers with good blossom and also take note of the form, color, lighting and background.
It needs a great deal of patients to photograph flowers.
Frame the picture, get it in focus, set the aperture, then about to press the shutter button and a breeze starts and moves the flower!
These pictures are taken from indoor in the The Kuala Lumpur Orchid Garden. The lighting is not good enough to take the best as I realised the flowers shots are not sharp enough and I should have used a tripod.
Concentrate on what you see in the viewfinder, and recompose the picture until it looks the best to you. Don’t be afraid to shoot a few extra pictures. Try different angles and different lighting. Also depict your subject from several different viewpoints.
I don’t have all the answers to good picture shots of flowers.It’s also important to know the control of depth of fields in your camera.
These orchid flowers were taken on Canon 30D fixed with a Canon 70-200 zoom lens.

Photo taken with a Canon camera and a 70-200mm F2.8 telephoto zoom lens.
Flower photography is a great photographic pleasure. Flowers can’t look any better than in color. In my opinion not all flowers are the same, some look like they are easy to be photographed but it may difficult to get all the details.
Flowers in tropical and temperate countries are different in size and color. Some look so fantastic and geogeous that the picture just comes out looking exactly how you want. And then some look average and uninteresting, but when you get in close, it will be a surprise to get all the curves, lines, colors and the finer details..
