      When I photograph flower I always pay attention to the background to make sure it is simple and dark, if possible. I remember I had to remove a few white petals on the ground for the feature photo so there was no distraction. During the post processing I can also darken the background when needed. — Stephen

      • Thanks for that info! I love photographing flowers at close range. I find I have “busy” backgrounds at times. I can edit the tones down a bit, but haven’t quite mastered it. BTW, I get your emails and really enjoy your photos!

    Cloudy day is the best time to photograph flowers that’s the day I shot these roses. Sometime I use flash to darken the busy background, try it.
