If you love flower photography, consider getting a dedicated macro lens. Paired with a steady tripod, a macro lens will let you get gorgeous shots really close to your subject. And with flowers, getting up close and personal can be very rewarding. Also, rather than just shoot a flower heads on, try to position your body or camera at different angles. At this kind of focusing distance, every position can yield a different result. Macro lens by the way, tend to be tack sharp and are also great for portrait photography.
