photographing flowers.

mostly, i enjoy photographing my children and the ideas for perfect photo shoots in my head usually involve a boy or two.
but photographing flowers can really be wonderful. they just sit there patiently while i click and click away. they are always agreeable and patient. they sit perfectly still while i put my aperture nice and wide
 and focus in on each petal as i please.
so yeah, every once in a while it's nice to find a field of daisies to spend some time with.
it's been done a million times over: making flowers into art that is,
but it really never gets old or goes out of style.
.
it's freeing and refreshing. but of course, in the end i usually try to
  corral one of my little guys into the field as well. can you blame me??

    1. I agree, photographing nature brings such a sense of peace. I love being able to hear nothing but the heavy click of my camera.

  2. I have a bush of flowers in full bloom in my back flower bed and I've been thinking over and over again - I should take some photos. It's been SO long since I've reached outside the realm of 'Henry photography'. I love these - so you, and so beautiful (just like you).

  3. You are such a talented photographer. These are stunning! I usually prefer seeing people in photos but every now and again, nature comes along and reminds me it's pretty too.

  5. It sure is nice to have a subject that doesn't move or lose patience for posing! But, just every once in a while. Beautiful shots!

  6. ha! yes, flowers are bit more cooperative than children. the photography of these wild flowers are gorgeous, but your little boy is just as sweet a subject!

  7. That's exactly why I take a lot of pictures of plants/flowers! My boys won't cooperate to save their lives, haha. But I can't resist them, either. ;)
