Flowers: A Popular Subject for Close-up and Macro Photography


Most of women are fond of flowers. Even for those people who easily get allergic, flowers are great gift in dream. However, flowers are hard to keep. Regardless of those pot plants, flowers are easy to wither within a few days. Thus, people keep seeking methods to keep their beauty for longer time such as vacuum package, herbarium, taking photos and so on.

Among those methods, I prefer photos best. It is a good way to keep flowers fresh without hurting them. I like those photos very much. To enjoy them is an embrace with the nature. Therefore, I like to scan the website to find out those beautiful pictures. And I find Mandy Disher, the winner of International Garden Photographer of the Year, who is professional in macro photography. Let’s learn from her photos.

 “I’ve always loved the natural beauty surrounding me and flowers seemed the perfect choice of subject for my love of macro photography. Nature does inspire me greatly, an endless supply of color and texture brings a fresh opportunity every single day, I could never ever get bored of taking floral shots.
