Bright and Yellow

I recently read an article describing the different levels of a photographer’s progress from novice to pro. One of the lower steps, just after a beginning level, mentioned flowers as being an easy subject to shoot.  Granted, flowers are not extremely difficult to shoot, as long as you have good light and the flower isn’t blowing with the wind. Hibiscus flowers are large, so that makes it even easier.

So why shoot them? Simple. They’re pretty. When you pass by a hibiscus plant in bloom, you can’t help but stop and stare. Their colors are great and the details are easy to see. I’ve posted a few of these before, but not in yellow, so now I can mark that color off my list. 

But when you notice that the stybus is sharp and that it was shot with an iPhone, it makes it that much nicer.

  1. Flower photographs definitely belong need to follow Robert Capa’s famous statement: “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough”. This shot proves the point perfectly. Still having trouble believing that this was taken with an iPhone – wonderful job, Tim!

    1. Thanks Mark. I got an iPhone 4S only because of the better camera than the older 4. I take a lot of wide angles, so I have to remind myself to go close sometimes.
