Photographing flowers comes with the norms of having the right gear and setup, which includes having an appropriate lens, a steady tripod, and the right lighting ambiance to work in, and other considerations which include how you are having the image cropped, the focal point of interest, depth of field, view angle, and of course, fore and background elements.

Preparation is the key, and getting the flowers in the right frame isolated from other distracting elements may need you to move in close and shoot at the macro level. Shooting at this level means you need a very steady hand or a tripod to set the camera up properly, a close focus or even a macro lens, good lighting or flash support, and last, but not least, a good grasp on what depth of field is all about.

My session was a bit stringent though. As an amateur snapshooter, I do not have nor carry around more than just the camera and a lens, this time with the E-P5 and a Lumix G 14mm 1:2.5 Asph. Shots were taken wide open and really close, almost at the minimum focusing distance of the lens, cropped, and given the pinhole and white frame border art effect on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) to further alienate the subject from its background.
