You can distract yourself and start shooting other flowers or objects that attract, but then you need to come back again and look at the flower from all sides with a fresh look, and then again and again, as if removing layer by layer from your vision, peering every time in more and more detail. I took this approach from my many years of experience when I discovered that the more you examine the subject, the more you can discover it for yourself. Continue reading
