I was showing my 9 year old grandson a trick or two about photography this summer.
For a long time, photography of flowers were a mystery to me until I learned that a black or dark background and low angled light (early morning or late evening or winter light) works rather well. It also works if the background is not distracting and adds to the story.
A good camera and the right settings help as well of course.
This yellow Anemone flowers all summer. This one found a tiny crack between the wall of my carport and asphalt driveway.
The mauve Aster blooms in late summer and insects, in particular bees love it. If it is watered regularly, nectar is produced, making it a very attractive plant for insects. Cropping this photo using Adobe would also help, but I have not mastered this yet!
