Each day will start with instruction and hands on training in Macro Water Droplet Photography. As the light begins to emerge we will move in to the gardens for instruction on capturing flowers in full and soft focus. You will be learning how to incorporate surrounding light, bokeh & colors as backgrounds to support your flower subjects. We will cover composition and image framing with assistance in selecting subjects. We will also discuss how to present your images and directional examples of post processing thoughts and suggestions for your images.
We will break for lunch and then have a review from your morning sessions. Following the review we will return to the gardens for an afternoon shoot. During this time, I will offer assistance based on the results of your morning review and introduce using a diffuser and a plamp.
The goal is to move you forward in your skills and abilities while learning enhanced styles and techniques to capture art.
If you are interested in a Thursday 25, April 2019 date in advance to the 3 day workshop.
This day will be for those that wish to submit a 10-15 count image series from your portfolio prior to the garden shoot.
These images should show your skills in macro and close-up flower and droplet photography.
You can submit images with or without processing. It is strongly encouraged to submit images without textures.
