Spring has well and truly sprung with daffodils and other flowers decorating gardens, roadsides and towns. As a result, now is a perfect time to get back outside with your camera so we've put together a quick list of techniques that'll help you make the most of spring.
There are plenty of ways you can photograph flowers and there's no reason why you can't just go out and shoot a variety of shots. However, if you're pushed for time, it's worth having an image in-mind before you head out of the door. In this article we list tips on kit, lighting, movement and subjects.
