How to Take Good Flower Photos with Your Smartphone

I love taking flower photos in my garden, but I am not always pleased with the results! Strangely, my android smartphone seems to yield the best results, perhaps because my expectations are always low and I’m always pleasantly surprised how my relaxed attitude makes for a better pic.

Either way, I wanted to pass on info about this interesting class, being offered in Takoma Park, MD in two weeks.
