Floral Photography Workshops

This three (3) hour studio workshop will cover the basic principles of floral lighting, composition, and design. We will include the use of one strobe, (hand-held flash) or incandescent light mixed with the natural light available. This workshop will also include learning to recognize the quality of light with the use of bare lighting, reflected lighting, and diffused lighting.

Our in studio Floral Workshops are designed for both the macro and non-macro lens owners. The emphasis of the class is to reinforce the design elements and composition of the floral arrangement or single flower. We will start by discussing the particular interesting elements of the flower or arrangement and how it might be best to approach that particular subject.
