Alright, photographing Dogwood flowers isn’t much like photographing wildflowers or flowers in your garden. On any given Dogwood tree there can be hundreds of flowers. The task of isolating one or a few few is difficult enough, but to find the flowers you’ve isolated and have a suitable background produces another challenge. Often, there’s patches of sunlight or lighter open space to deal with also.
Maybe it’s only this difficult in the area I was looking in where the trees were scarce and bunched together. Let me know if your experience has been easier than mine.
