I will admit that Roses are not my favorite flower. Just recently I have found like most other things in Nature, I love to photograph Roses also. The following photos I will be showing were all taken with my Nikon D3100 camera using a smaller lens.
Since I am teaching myself about a lot of the "tricks of the trade" when it comes to photography, I just continue forward trying to learn from my mistakes.
You have to admit though, even if you are having a rough day, when you look through the lens of a camera, everything changes especially when looking at flowers!
