A flower can be portrayed from many different angles. Choose your angle based on the flower's characteristics, personality, and beauty.
Make a flower stand out from the crowd, it's beauty too strong to be a part of the background. It's delicacy too irresistible to not focus on. Make the flower regal, prominent, an object of grace.
Show off the flower's assets. The strong, bold stigma. The fanned petals reach out towards you.
"The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions." - Chanakya
Be the flower. Stick your camera down to the dirt and take a photograph from the bottom up. Gorgeous, huh?

There are always flowers for those who want to see them. - Henri Matisse
