Pictures of Flowers
What's Your Favorite?

My pictures of flowers are grouped into galleries… they’re just below.  Take your time and enjoy browsing.

Some of my images were taken several years ago, many when I was studying photography. I’ve been through several phases desperately trying to find my style and narrow down what I truly love to shoot.

While I was in photography school in Vancouver, some of my most beautiful images (still, to this day) were in the gorgeous gardens that Vancouver and Vancouver Island are famous for.

I was an introverted child, by myself out in nature most of the time. So it’s no wonder that wedding or street photography just didn’t stick. It was nature I kept returning to.

I already had a personal style as far as my pictures of flowers went. I experimented and I still do.

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” - T.S. Eliot

My pictures of flowers have changed over the years. I think most of us change and if we don't, that would be a pity.

Some of the most important tools that influence my photography might surprise you. Meditation, mindfulness, QiGong...  reading Einstein’s biography!

The more connected you are to the natural environment, and to yourself, the more improvement you’ll see in your flower photos.There's much more to photography than the technical terms and theory!

And, what better teachers and friends than the flowers?

I love photographing dahlias and the light on this red flower makes this a luminous image.  It's a RAW file and I didn't do much to it in Photoshop... just the usual tweaks, then  a vignette.

When you bought your camera, it most likely came with a basic photo editing program. If you're artistic, get one that's more advanced!

Like Photoshop and Lightroom. Adobe (CC) offers that combination in their monthly photographer's program for under $10 a month. How can you lose?
