2013 Challenge, Week 15: Flora

Spring is finally here, even if there is still an occasional snow storm now and then. This week you’ll have to get outside and shoot Flora, or plants. You can shoot flowers, trees, grass, anything that is some kind of plant.

If you are in an area where Spring is in full bloom, maybe get a nice macro of a unique plant.

Or take a break at lunch and head to the park, or some other more exotic location.

You can use the lines of plants or trees, along with roads or paths to lead people into your photo.

Grab your camera, and head outside and explore the plant life around you. Even if you’re still frozen over, you can find some kind of plant to shoot this week. Good luck!

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
