We encourage you to take pictures of interest in the early morning or late afternoon when sunlight is not too bright, for the flower pictures you take out the color more.
2. Focal Point
Determine the focal point of the object that you will take, whether it’s a collection of colorful flowers or just a flower. Notice of what will be included in your frame. Note also the background or foreground object, do not there things that interfere. If the background or foreground objects are found to be interesting, better looking the other focal point.
