3. Flowers

Like the saying goes April showers brings May flowers, spring has plenty of flowers to go around. You can cut them to make your own arrangement. Or try making them pop by doing a little color and black and white.

4. Fishing

Spring is also a prefect time to go out and do some fishing. Being down on the lake, river, stream or even the bay can make some interesting shots. You never know you may even see someone catch that trophy fish and can photograph them with it. That will also help get your name out there.

5. Boats

With the weather warming up tons of people hit the waters and go boating. Try your hand at taking photos of the boats passing by. Better yet if you can rent one for yourself, you will be able to get photos others could only dream about.

6. Spring rain

We all know that it can rain a lot in the spring. How else are we going to get the May flowers? Try taking a picture of some flowers right after a rain storm. The rains can also bring some intense storms. Just remember to be safe if you are trying to catch lightning.

7. Fairs and Festivals

There are all kinds of fairs and festivals going on in the spring. Many people want to get out and enjoy the warming weather. Going to festivals and fairs gets you out to enjoy your local area. Driving to some festivals are worth it too. If you live close to Washington, DC you should check out the cherry blossom festival. I will be going this year. I have been wanting to go the last few years. This year I am going to do it.
