Sometimes the best photographs might be right in your backyard.  These Black-eyed Susans were growing on the side of my house.  A couple tips for backyard flower photograph.

1.  Watch your backgrounds.  Try to keep them from being too busy.
2.  Work with shallow depth of field.  You want enough depth of field to keep most of the flower in focus but you also want to blur out the background so that it doesn't distract from the subject.
