A flower is the reproductive organ of those plants classified as angiosperms. The function of a flower is to produce seeds through sexual reproduction. For the higher plants, seeds are the next generation, and serve as the primary means by which individuals of a species are dispersed across the landscape. After fertilization, a flower develops into a fruit containing the seed
A flower is regarded a modified stem with shortened internodes and bearing, at its nodes, structures that may be highly modified leaves. In essence, a flower structure forms on a modified shoot or axis with an apical meristem that does not grow continuously. The stem is called a pedicel, the end of which is the torus or receptacle. The pictures are large and may be used for print.

Photographing flowers

When photographing flowers you need to consider whether you simply want to show the flowers in their natural habitat or to create an artistic image. Depending on your aim, you will then need to decide on a few points:

Framing? Take a close up or a wider view?
The main focus? Colour, stem, petal, insect etc.
Depth of field? Blurred background with focus on the flower etc.
Distractions in foreground or background?
Lighting? What suits the subject best?
Format? Landscape or portrait?
   
Most of us don't know that much about flowers except for the fact that they smell good and they look visually attractive. Anyway, who doesn't like flowers? I have never heard of one. However, not all of those who appreciate flowers can fully explain the roles that they serve: to the plants for reproduction as pollinators, and to people - beyond decoration such as fruits and vegetables. They are for sure a valuable and increasingly exquisite resource. Flowers could be part of your income or occupation, or maybe you simply have an interest in them. For whichever reason, flowers will never disappoint. Flowers are appealing and some smell good, and you sometimes ask yourself what pollinators see?
This article is meant to give you the basic understanding of what you should do to get pictures of flowers that your friends and family (general audience) will be envious of, given your skills. Before you start on anything ensure that you know how a camera works and how to set it to achieve decent results. Flower photography is among the top explored field both for fun, and as a profession, these are some of the tips you should be aware of;

Amount of lighting
Preferably your subject should be perfectly lit, but in some instances, you may need to intervene with some artificial light of use reflectors, though the more natural the lighting is, the more real your photo will be

Focus is Important
In any photography, sharp focus is essential. You should be able to identify the point of interest that you are concentrating on and ensure that it is as sharp as possible. Sometimes getting extra close and focussing in on the part of the flower will create excellent and uncommon images that take on an intangible quality. To achieve this, you need contrasting colours, configurations and textures.

Weather
The presence of direct sunlight will cast cruel shadows and create bright highlights on undesired regions which will ruin exposure. The best time to photograph is on a cloudy day because the clouds will act as the light diffuser thus creating a balance in lighting. However, photography requires patience and passion, but when you can’t wait for an overcast day, cloudy days can serve you well, only wait for a cloud to pass under the sun and do your thing!

Conclusion
Fi
nally, when photographing flowers, you should look for those with appealing backgrounds you may fall into the trap of concentrating on its beauty and forget the surrounding environment. You should note that an attractive background helps your image draw attention. The flower should also be in good shape. Carefully inspect the bulb to ensure that it has missing petals or is of poor colour. So take some time to find that so, take the time to find a flower that has no diverting elements (a perfect flower). And please leave no trace, this means that you should not step on the flowers nor disturb their habitat, leave things the way you found them
