Photographing flowers is an amazing way to combine fun, nature and your passion for gardening and photography.

However, if you have ever tried to photograph flowers, you may already know this is easier said than done.

In this workshop you will learn how to make your images more representative of that jewel in the garden you saw iwth your eyes. You will learn how to overcome pesky troubles in the field with your tripod and lighting. By the end of the workshop, you will have a nice portfolio of flower photos. Enjoy learning in this small class where each photographer is giving individual attention. 

Participants will learn:

  • How to work with existing light and electronic flash in the Four Arts Garden.
  • How to set up a flower studio on a small table indoors.
  • How to use a white bucket studio to create a light table to photograph anything, anywhere, with a beautiful luminescent background. 
  • How to make impressionistic photos using your camera.

Equipment needed for this workshop:

  •   DSLR camera or mirrorless interchangeable lens camera
  •   Freshly charged batteries and spares for your camera
  •   Macro or close-up lens, or just the lens you already have 
  •   Tripod
  •   Cable release
  •   External electronic flash if you own one, with batteries
  •   Your camera and flash instruction manuals

A few weeks before the workshop begins, I will send you a list of suggested accessories and apps to purchase before the first session.
