Photographing spring flowers and blossom is all about timing - knowing when your local trees come into bloom or when the crocuses or daffodils appear in the woods. If you can go on a short trip, you will find local public spaces and parks or woodlands. Do some research to find out the best time for the trees or woods in your area. March and April are perfect Shoot a variety of wideangle and close up shots and pay careful attention to focus
Look up to find clean backgrounds & blue skies if you're lucky. If it's overcast turn on the built in flash and experiment
Fallen Blossom Look Down or crouch down, and shoot with a low perspective. Use Rule of Thirds or Leading Lines to help the composition
Watch the focus on the crocus !! Get down low - watch your shadow doesn't fall on the flower. Try shooting towards the sun.
The Close-up symbol. In this mode the camera will maximise its ability to focus at close range - and at the same time increase depth of field - Focus is critical in macro mode and extra depth of field will help keep the main subject sharp. Stay really still. Shoot several pics and choose the sharpest
And if it's STILL NOT SHARP - say " it's Abstract - dummy !!! "
