It is easy to think of the smell of flowers as being designed for humans. But the real story is more complicated and has almost nothing do with us. If you want to know why flowers smell keep on reading.
It’s been a while since I last created a print freebie, so today I am giving away a magazine template. The idea first came to me while reading The Economist; the brilliantly typeset pages (by Erick Speakermann) make me nostalgic for the days of print, modern-day blogging can lack the character and readability of a well type-set page. The Rose Magazine freebie contains an Indesgin and a MS Word version. Click more to get the template.
In this post, I’m happy to feature photos of Grandirosa Floral Design Studio’s wedding flower designs at Brides The Show, which took place in London this month.
It’s difficult to style flowers in a wide vase without them all leaning out to the rim. But here is a lifehack that solves the issue.
Florists have various techniques for fixing flowers in a place like chicken wire, flower frogs, and foam. However, this is not something that you can find at home when presented with a bunch of flowers. Since most of us don’t keep floral foam and another florist supplies.

Brides the Show is taking place from September 30th to October 2nd 2016 at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. This wedding show is one of the best in London and so deserves a visit.

But could also be interesting for everyone who loves flowers, craft tutorials, and cute things.
NAFAS exhibit at the Chelsea flower show this year was impressive. It was colourful and creative, but what inspired me the most was their creative approach to space. Chelsea flower show is a place where everyone wants to exhibit and thus space is scarce. The show gathers crowds every year so space between installations feels especially narrow. This is really not fun for photographers. But NAFAS found a solution to the problem! They created an open-sided conservatory and filled it with various arrangements of different heights and sizes. This allowed photographers to take pictures from all points without any visual pollution from other stands to me this felt innovative.
Today let’s have a look inside “That Flower Shop”. I featured a stunning arch design by florist Hattie Fox of That Flower Shop around this time last year. And a short while ago I traveled to Shoreditch and visited Hattie’s flower shop. This blog post features images of the inside of her shop which are magnificent and a bit quirky.
Photographing flowers against a black background is easy and this setup will give you unique images compared to images taken against a white background. Black backgrounds work for all colors, they’re elegant, hide shadows and do not draw the viewer’s attention from the flowers. In this blog post, I will explain how to take photographs of small objects against the black background.
