How to be a better flower photographer

When photographing flowers, go for the close-up. Lean in to allow the flower to fill the frame, watching that your camera (or, more likely, smartphone) doesn't cast a shadow over your subject. If possible, stand above the flower and shoot down into its petals, focusing on the bloom's center.
