Color Ideas for Flowers

Color contrast. Let one color dominate the composition, then show a contrasting color for balance. With floral close-ups, soft light is often best, and shallow depth of field is OK if one interesting detail is sharp.

Rain brings new opportunities. Flowers and leaves have more saturated colors when they are wet. A light mist can be wonderful. Big water droplets act like lenses. Bring an umbrella.

Use color to highlight an area of interest. Color changes attract the eye to the differences. Place the secondary color away from the center of the composition. Close-up and tight cropping can intensify the effect.
