INSPIRATION
From fields of wildflowers to elaborate European gardens and detailed closeup images of petals, flowers have captivated the eyes and hearts of people for thousands of years. The introduction to this workshop will show you many different options you can achieve with your DSLR and a little imagination.
GEAR
Lenses and useful accessories – Find out what your lenses can do and what other lenses are available and how they can be used in different situations for flower photography. We’ll look at macro, telephoto and wide angle lenses as well as other simple items you can use at home or out in the field.
PLANNING THE SHOOT
Indoors or on location – The first question to ask yourself is: What are you going to communicate? How do you want the finished image to look? This will set the scene for your choice of blooms, colour palette, composition, lighting, camera settings and post processing. You’ll go away with guidelines on what settings to use when the weather is against you, such as wind or too much or too little light.

LIGHTING
Consider lighting in many situations and learn how to make the most of whatever is available. Use reflectors and diffusers which can easily be taken out for location shoots.
APERTURE

FOCUS
As well as addressing the technical aspects of focussing on difficult subjects, you’ll learn how to develop selective focus and use foreground elements to create a painterly look.
COMPOSITION

POST PROCESSING
Something to consider before you begin shooting, post processing is a vital part of image making. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just intentional and if you wish to have a cohesive series of work, it should be consistent.
PRINTING
By starting with the end in mind, you will be able to plan for the various printing options available.
