Spring is in the air and flowers are blooming everywhere. It is a great time of the year to focus on the flowers as the ground is still brown and barren and the leaves have not come forth. Backgrounds are very important in photography. Sometimes as important as the subject. The use of colors that appear naturally can add so much to a background. In this photo session I used the close proximity of a yellow Forsythia bush and white flowers and juxtaposed them so that in some situations the yellow flowers are the background, in some cases the foreground and vice versa. The morning was foggy and still with little wind which always helps when taking flower photos as wind moves the flowers and makes them a lot harder to get in focus. It was a beautiful morning to spend with the flowers and I found it very healing. Important equipment to have would be a tripod, macro lens or extension tubes and in this case a 70-200 zoom lens for some of the shots as it was hard to get close to them because of the height and thickness of the bushes.
