Students will learn how to photograph flowers using the proper tools and techniques so that the flowers are represented beautifully. Optimal light for flowers, diffusion of light when light isn’t optimal, floral composition, background considerations, tools and best lenses to use while making floral images, post processing and much more will be discussed. Students should have a working knowledge of their camera and understand exposure principals of shutter speed, f/stop and aperture. 


Photographing flowers has been my passion since 2005. I have been honing my skills in the fine art of flower photography since then and have a great deal of knowledge on which tools, lenses, lighting and post processing will give you the most beautiful floral images! I have also taught Photoshop and can help you understand which tools will help you optimize your floral images.
