Photographing flowers can be one of the hardest things to do. I have deep respect for any photographer who manages to do it well.

In these days I am trying different new things and shooting flowers is part of my adventure. To get myself inspired I collected some of the best photographs of flowers that I could find on flickr. I hope that you enjoy these 41 delicious flower photographs as much as I do. Enjoy and get inspired!

    hey Mr. Flower, why are you copying my words? kindly write your own. Is there anything else you are trying to say?

  • flower July 21, 2010 04:53 pm

    what and when you compose a photograph from a camera? True and great photographers don’t necessarily photoshop their shots.

  • Klementine Schoel July 9, 2010 10:33 pm

    I really like the variety of the chosen fotos. It gets never boring to browse through these, because each one show a unique aspect.

    Here is one photo I like very much:

  • shaheenazk June 21, 2010 10:19 pm

    Hey Adobe2,
    I often wonder that by photoshopping a flower shot, is the photographer's true photographic skill being displayed? Isn't photography, really about how, what and when you compose a photograph from a camera? True and great photographers don't necessarily photoshop their shots. Even I never do it. Therefore I do not agree with your statement 'but don’t forget to mention “Photoshop”, after all, what’s a flower picture without “Photoshop".'

    Sorry if I sound rude but I don;t mean to. :-)

  • Opustg April 9, 2010 03:32 am

    I really love photographing flowers but i find that i am slightly limited by my lens not being able to get as close as i would like to my subject. I have a Nikon 18-200, any hints or suggestions on how to get closer? Can i crop my photos and still get high quality pictures? or should i be looking at lenses at the far ends of the specturum? Wider or more of a zoom lens? Recently i have been looking for a wider lens like a 10-24 that nikon has or should i be looking for more of a zoom lens? Thanks!!

  • laanba April 7, 2010 12:19 pm

    Wonderful collection Martin! My Flickr group is doing a photo assignment this month of Flowers so this will be wonderful inspiration.

    I had A spine fussion 2 years ago and found it hard to get out and about to take photo's like I use to so I got a heap of flower bulbs and seeds and asked the neibours for some cuttings and started my own garden just for photography and it has been one of the best photogrphic subjects I have ever taken an interest in and my kids love playing with the flowers and love having their photos taken with the flowers.
    So we think flower power rules OK.

    Thank you for sharing. Truly is a very nice post with stunning images. Photographing flower does has it own challenge, especially dealing with movement cause by wind

  • Bhaumik March 26, 2010 08:16 pm

    my first experience with flowers - Fujifilm Finepix S9600

  • RolandG March 26, 2010 07:16 pm

    @anne: I use a macro lens (AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm 1:2,8G VR with Nikon D60), but you could as well start with the kit lens, the D90 has an excellent one. Most of the times you will need a tripod for a macro lens, because the depth of field will be very shallow if you have shutter speeds that work for hand held.

  • Lynn March 26, 2010 03:26 pm

    I shoot with a Nikon D300 and usually use my 200mm macro (Nikon calls it micro). I almost always use a tripod. The 200mm lens is really too heavy for me to shoot without a tripod. The lens actually mounts on the tripod rather than the camera body. You can use a good VR lens like my 18-200 and get in fairly close and could get good shots without a tripod. Even if you get a mono-pod, that would help.There are extension tubes and close-up lenses (like a filter) that are less expensive than a macro lens. http://www.uniquenotecards.net/index/Pages/Rosebuds.html#7 The rosebud was shot with the 200mm. http://www.uniquenotecards.net/index/Pages/flowers.html#6 The dahlia was shot with a 55-200mm, if I remember correctly.

  • stuti March 26, 2010 03:17 pm

    flowers are natures truly beautiful creations and their beauty has been enhanced several times over through the stunning captures
    never knew that they could be photographed with so many different angles

  • Tushar March 26, 2010 02:41 pm

    Some Angle and Technics are Amazing even stil I thinking that how can photographer taken that Beautiful shot...

  • Simon March 26, 2010 01:39 pm

    Those are impressive. Like others here, I enjoy taking photos of flowers - the colours and the scale can make for quite striking shots, as this collection demonstrates...

  • Anne March 26, 2010 12:30 pm

    Do most of these have to use a macro lens? If not, what is suggested? And, if you do use a macro, do they always have to be used on a tripod, or can they be hand held? I have a D90. Thanks.

    Flowers are so wonderful. They photograph so nicely and always smile, which is why doing macro work with them is one of my favorite types of photography.

  • Matt March 25, 2010 10:44 am

    @bev: The camera with the handle looks like a Pentax 6x7 - a Medium Format film camera that produces negatives 60mm by 70mm. It was/is popular with many nature photographers that want to produce gallery prints.

    how about I just leave behind my very soul....
    for your beautiful world's flowers and light
    I might as well go live inside...
    so that I can taste deeply each digital sight
    and to begging your permission day and night
    for the sun in your field never subside...
    for such heavenly garden gate open wide!
    so please! let me step inside....

    Thank you so much for these beautiful photos! they are as if have their life of their own, and so ever dazzling splendid under the sun of your soul and the light beam of your eyes!
    I feel as if walk into a different world at soon as my eyes glance on them... and all the troubles go away, only drown into the ocean of pure beauty and enlightment....
    Thank you so very much!

    Most of the photos here post on your blog are "all rights reserved" they need each and every one of the photos owners permission to post on your blog and you being a member of Flickr, should know better. I have notified some of the owners of the photos that their license has been violated. You did the right thing to link back but that is only for photos not using the "ALL RIGHTS RESERVED" CC license.

    My comments may sound like cliches, but there's a lot of truth in cliches. This collection is awesome and inspirational.

  • Jeri Sofka June 17, 2008 01:02 am

    A superb collection!

  • laanba June 14, 2008 02:17 am

    Martin, you have exquisite taste. I love posts like this to get inspiration and to find such beautiful gems in the multitude of talented photographers on Flickr.

  • ketema balcha June 13, 2008 12:40 am

  • Trish June 12, 2008 09:08 pm

    these are so amazing ...I am in awe of the beauty and deliciousness

  • Lawn June 8, 2008 09:34 pm

    Beautiful! How would your house look if you had wall-sized images such as these on them?

  • div^ June 8, 2008 02:56 am


    Each of those fotos is a beauty for itself. Those colors are just vibrant and wonderfully looking for the viewers eye.


  • Mathieu June 7, 2008 08:29 pm

    Those are all lovely shots! I agree with Serge, he offers great tips! I always forget how I can use my flash, even in the middle of the day, to get all those details.

  • Karo June 7, 2008 08:24 am

    There are so many fabulous flower photographers on flickr it's a bit befuddling to me why the author of this post simply posted multiple photos from the same few people. They're lovely, of course, but it would be nice to have seen some other photographers and styles showcased among the 41. Just a few examples from my own contact list:





  • RayPG June 7, 2008 06:10 am

    I got another photo of another flower a lion tooth


    This was kinda tricky to get but I got it in the right moment :D Hope you enjoy :D

  • Debbie June 7, 2008 01:25 am

    Flowers are one of my favorite subjects to photograph (I also enjoy animals and rock formations/faces). You can view my photos at http://innerbeing.aminus3.com/portfolio/.

    I not only will get down to flower level, I try and use the sun to my advantage as it lights up the inner part(s) of the flower(s).

    I absolutely love the macro/super macro on the Canon S3IS...it lets you get down to 0" and on many occasions I've ended up with pollen on the lens as I didn't realize I was that close.

  • Mark H June 7, 2008 12:31 am

    Some very inspriring photos. Wish there were mountains like that in the UK :)

  • Pat Buchannon June 6, 2008 11:45 pm

    My 14-year-old nephew picked up my digital camera yesterday and took some of the most beautiful pictures of flowers I've seen. I would love to share these with this site because he doesn't even own a camera. I'm wondering if we should make the investmemt for him, but need an expert's opinion of his photos. How do I submit one?

  • Erika June 6, 2008 10:20 pm

    Maybe my next lens will be a macro lens.

  • Peter Hooper June 6, 2008 09:52 pm

    Fantastic shots. I love the ones with the reflections in the water droplets.. truly inspiring stuff. I have been photographing quite a lot of flowers myself lately and this just gives me more reason to do some more.

  • Neil Creek June 6, 2008 07:52 pm

    I give the credit firmly to mother nature, and of course the extremely talented photographers who captured the beauty.

  • Daniel Condurachi June 6, 2008 07:43 pm

    Very beautiful and inspiring. Thank you God for creating so much beauty!

  • toola June 6, 2008 06:56 pm

    very inspiring shots - I love the ones by rosemary especially. thanks for posting these!

  • Jane Leech June 6, 2008 04:43 pm

    Truly inspiring but also makes one think whether one should just give up now!!! Great shots.

  • S.Raj babu June 6, 2008 04:35 pm

    Hi !

    All the photos are great.

    Had a nice effect on me to go shooting the flowers.


  • Fern R June 6, 2008 04:00 pm

    One of them is not a flower :)

    Which one are you referring to? If you're talking about the black and white shot, it's calla lily leaves, which is not a flower, but it's also not a shell...?!

  • Kunal Daswani June 6, 2008 03:23 pm

    Here's one i think should be in this post. Picture by our very own teewinot


  • John Rose June 6, 2008 01:22 pm

    Very nice shots... I can see how this can inpire you to buy that next macro lens....

  • AC June 6, 2008 11:44 am

    Brilliant snaps! Makes me want to go out and take some more pics :)

  • Wes Kroesbergen June 6, 2008 09:48 am

    I've also got a Flickr flower photo gallery here:

  • Serge June 6, 2008 09:09 am

    My tips on photographing flowers:
    1. get down on your knees or even flat on the ground; that's where the flowers are. It's like photographing kids, get down to there level.
    2. take the time to look at them, turn around and around for more point of view and you'll see your shot taking shape.
    3. find the light! fill flash is often great to capture more details of these beauties.
    4. watch the background... often shooting slightly downwards remove a whole lot of undesired stuff behind. Keeping a very narrow depth of field will also help achiving this.

    Happy shooting!

  • Jon June 6, 2008 08:50 am

    I love it when you do posts like these. Please, keep them up!

  • Bev June 6, 2008 08:39 am

    I agree with Cappy1927. We are all learning. When pictures
    are submitted, we would love to hear how it was taken. All
    the pictures were great. The man holding a Pentex camera caused me to wonder what the "handles " were on the camera.
    Is this common for pentex cameras? I thought the handles sure would help stablize hand held shots---right?

  • Teewinot June 6, 2008 08:20 am

    Wow, gorgeous bunch of shots!

  • cappy1927 June 6, 2008 06:42 am

    I recently finishing viewing the flower photos and I would like to know the data on how these photos were made. After all we are in school. I can get the data on the photos I take but not on other peoples. Your help would be appreciated.

  • Ken Howe June 6, 2008 05:23 am

    I just discovered how interesting plant photography can be a few years ago. This collection is exquisite and superbly refeshing. I look for flower subjects frequently and now am inspired to look for more.

  • velda June 6, 2008 04:33 am

    These are quite lovely. But there are SO many flower photos out there, because so many of us love looking at them and trying to capture what we see. So how do we make our flower photos better?

  • Serge June 6, 2008 04:12 am

    Quiet an interesting collection you put together!
    I have a few flowers, I know I have a long way to go...

  • Jan Scott June 6, 2008 04:02 am

    Oh, I meant to publish my address too: http://www.simplyfabphotos.co.uk

  • Jan Scott June 6, 2008 04:01 am

    I LOVE taking flower shots and these have inspired me to take (lots) more

  • Richard June 6, 2008 03:59 am

    Thank you for those pictures.
    STUNNING beauty, I am again inspired

  • Ninad Gujar June 6, 2008 03:47 am

    Stunning shots (all of 'em)!

  • RayPG June 6, 2008 02:09 am

    I have one photo similar with water drops and the reflection of the flower, :D


  • marcus June 6, 2008 02:06 am

    While mine aren't as good as these, I've got a couple interesting flower photos.

  • Neil Creek June 6, 2008 02:02 am

    I LOVE shooting flowers, because of the challenge, but also because of the almost limitless variety of shape form and colour they offer. They are also incredibly beautiful.

    Here are some of my flower photos on Flickr.

    To be a bit unique, I've also experimented with 3D flower photography, something I really want to do more of.

    The selection you have found for us is truly inspiring and beautiful! I think I'll have to shoot some more flowers this weekend :) Thank you!

  • Raymond Chan June 6, 2008 01:43 am

    The shots by Steve took it are great! These are some serious flower photographers! Thanks =)
