With spring creeping around the corner we thought we'd take a look at some of the flower shots awarded POTW.

As snowdrops and daffodils will soon be showing their heads in our gardens and parks, we thought we'd showcase some of the top flower / plant images found on ePHOTOzine. All these shots have won the Photo of the Week accolade and were tagged with flower / plant. Hopefully they will fill you with inspiration for when flowers do begin to decorate our flowerbeds once again.

Of course, thanks to supermarkets selling flowers all year round flower photography is something that's accessible throughout the year (as some of the images here demonstrate). We have a few tutorials on indoor flower photography, plus a technique on shooting more abstract style flower photography too. Take a look at ePHOTOzine's technique section for a full list of flower photography tutorials. 

As a general rule, you'll need a tripod (one with legs that splay would be perfect when working outdoors so you can get close to the ground), a reflector and something to hold your subject still, such as a plamp.  A DSLR such as the Nikon D4 or D800 with a macro lens would also have a place in your kit bag, although some compacts do now have very good close focusing distances so can be used to capture flower shots.
