1. Start With Good Light
The right light is 80% of taking a good photograph of a flower arrangement. We already know direct sunlight is bad for fresh flowers, but it's also bad for flower photography. Direct sun is too strong and it will make the flowers look washed out.
If you can, photograph your flowers in an area where the light source is coming from the north. North Light is ideal because it's diffused but still bright enough for your camera to pick up the details in the arrangement.
2. Simplify The Background
You don't want the background to be unsightly or distracting. Try to find a neutral or plain background for your flowers. Here at the shop, we have rolls of colored paper that we use for backgrounds when we're photographing flowers on our phones, but it could be something as simple as a white wall.

If your goal is to show the flowers to the sender, make sure to capture the whole arrangement in the image and shoot the flowers straight on, not too much above or below.
