Photographing nature and flowers can be extremely rewarding yet challenging for photographers of all levels. The number one thing to remember with shooting all formats and styles of photography is to remember there is no wrong way to do it. Photography is an art - within that art lies composition. Each photographer has their own style and creative touches - but where we can go wrong is to constantly focus our photography on outside influences opposed to your own style.
