The one good thing about my little LX5 (yes, I’m still harping on about it) is that it has a macro capability, plus you can set it to different aspects on the camera (square, landscape etc) – which is pretty handy for composing flower type pictures.
I’m not really that into taking shots of flowers – they’re pretty enough and close up, they can be interesting I suppose – but I’m just not that good at taking them for the most part. I’ve seen some corking flower photos – some people can just visualise something that the looks good. I’ve also seen black and whites flower shots where the picture is all about form, light and texture – now that I do find genuinely interesting.
