It's expected that a photographer studies and practices photography theory... as well as automatically knowing all the bells and whistles on a camera.
But, there's so much more to nature photography than theory. There are the stories inside of us that we want to come through in our photos to touch people who see our images. To infuse those stories into our images, we need an emotional connection to our subjects and the experience of being an intricate part our natural world.
"In life and in photography, a closer look at the familiar

It's a slow, peaceful experience.
Maybe you can't get to a garden today. No worries, there's always a flower nearby. Even one tiny flower is a captivating subject through a camera lens. A delicate little flower pushing up through the concrete and reaching for the sun has its own story of strength and courage!
