I will be at Chanticleer: A Pleasure Garden to offer a Friday evening lecture on The Joy of Photographing Flowers followed on Saturday and Sunday by a two-day workshop on Flower & Garden Photography. The lecture presentation will take you on a visual journey that begins with my early attempts at flower photography and will trace the path I traveled learning the craft necessary to create dramatic floral close-ups. During the intensive two-day workshop, we will enhance our photographic skills by exploring the variety of flower beds, water gardens, woodlands and other world-class settings at Chanticleer at the peak of summer. Through lectures, field sessions and review sessions, you will receive in-depth instruction on making the best use of natural light throughout the day; mastering floral close-ups; portraying flowers in their garden setting, including the lotus water gardens; and understanding the technical potential of digital cameras and after- capture techniques for achieving creative outcomes.
