The Joy of Photographing Flowers, July 9-11


Picture 7 of 7

I will be at The Chicago Botanic Garden to offer a Friday evening lecture on The Joy of Photographing Flowers followed on Saturday and Sunday by a two-day workshop on Floral Close-Up 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. The intensive two-day workshop is scheduled at the height of the summer bloom. We will concentrate on close-up techniques using macro lenses, inexpensive extension tubes and close-up filters on lenses you already have, all to help you create dramatic and aesthetic images of flowers as you have rarely seen them.
