The Art of Flower Photography

Denise Ippolito is recognized as one of the world’s premier flower photographers because of her creativity in both the field and at the computer. Several years ago she inspired Artie to tackle flowers and he was a quick study. Denise does great things with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS lens. Artie uses that one on occasion but often goes to longer focal lengths for his flower photography. He has been seen in Keukenhoff Gardens in Holland photographing tulips with a 600 mm lens and a teleconverter. Both share their techniques that they use to create dramatic, sharp, well-composed, properly exposed images of flowers and flower fields.

    What do you do during windy conditions where the flower is moving back and forth?

  2. Mitch Wasserman on September 23, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    Suggestion to viewers, watch at 1.5x speed.

    Im an amateur photographer and never went to any school just went in there I have some shots actually better than theirs although they know what their doing and most of them are really good. I think they didn’t cover a topic about flowers and bugs together. My Photographs can be seen in my facebook page the name is Moment Collector feel free to browse and Like is much appreciated.

    This is my 5th time watching this video. Every time I watch it I learn something new. Keep up the great work.

  9. Xi He on September 23, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    Amazing speakers! Love their bird photo one as well!

  10. Herminigildo Jakosalem on September 23, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Is that Jesse Ventura? LOL!

  11. S GD on September 23, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Excuse my ignorance in advance, but I have seen Arthur as the no:1 bird photographer so judge my surprise when this video dropped!

  15. Rhino Ulery on September 23, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    This is my fifth time watching this video. Every time I watch it I’m inspired and I learn something new each time..

  16. David L Allen on September 23, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    Thank you. Excellent photos, great advice & suggestions. I’ve learned a lot from this.

  17. Cathy McDougall on September 23, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    As a beginner in Macro photography, with a strong interest in flowers, I found this a fascinating study of all the different ways to look at flowers. Really inspiring, and good explanations of how each effect was created. I have a large flowering garden of my own to start with. Just waiting on my first macro lens and itching to get started as the fruit trees are now in bloom. Thanks for posting, I found this really helpful.

  18. Xackery Xtal on September 23, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    This makes me want to go find books about contemporary photography and concept.

  19. Nicolaas Strik on September 23, 2019 at 9:41 pm

    I just love Denise’s photography and her presentation.

  20. Alan Halsey on September 23, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    Good god this is so damn boring! I wanted to learn something here but I kept falling asleep! Videos like this are atrocious, these people aren’t talking to a video audience they’re talking to a crowd so don’t record it duh!

  21. Mustafa0949 on September 23, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  22. Dieter Käppel on September 23, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you for the inspirations 🙂

  23. Pixie & Dixie on September 23, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Denise , you looks like Joni Mitchel the Canadian70,s song writer!

  24. Andrew Brandt on September 23, 2019 at 9:47 pm

    2 photographers with very different photographic approaches, very different teaching styles and different personalities who both create wonderful flower photos. Great tutorial.

  25. Tomas Ramoska on September 23, 2019 at 9:52 pm

    To me this is bunch of snapshots..

  26. Stephanie Robinson on September 23, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    This video would be so much better if the arrogant guy wasn’t in it

  27. John McCormick on September 23, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    I saw this guy for a workshop on bird photography. While he is quite a fine photographer he is annoying with the data comments.

  28. S Visser on September 23, 2019 at 9:56 pm

    Can this be edited so he doesn’t speak?
    And what’s with the hoody and looking like a punk, is he a teenager or a senior citizen?

  29. JF_ PHILIPP on September 23, 2019 at 9:56 pm

    Very interesting, thank you !! 🙂 JF

  30. lakedancer on September 23, 2019 at 9:58 pm

    Denise, I am inspired by your photography and am interested in attending one of your workshops, but I get an error every time i click on the workshops link on your websites. Can you provide a working URL please? Thanks!

  31. Rick Pinelli on September 23, 2019 at 9:58 pm

    Not the usual quality training video I am accustomed to seeing from B&H.
    Started with out introductions and in the middle of an explanation, and the
    video ends just as abruptly.

    Other than the above, it was an educational experience.

  32. tkay4401 on September 23, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    This was really neat! Thank you for giving this presentation. I like the idea of using a small reflector instead of flash, and I’m also glad that you were as enthusiastic as you were for shooting in cloudy conditions, foggy condition, etc.

  33. Hasan Ali on September 23, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    Thank you so much for such a great presentation full of inspiration and ideas.

  34. MK Norris on September 23, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    I’ve watched this 3 times

  35. charles molt on September 23, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    I go to a local public flower garden. I got some awesome ideas, but it is raining now and will be for two days.

  36. J Andrews on September 23, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Come on, stop interrupting her!

  37. Jeremy Hunter on September 23, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    She’s not giving any information on teaching how to take the shot. She’s introducing the flower itself. He’s actually teaching.

  38. jaroslava porfirio on September 23, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    get over your watermarks . great photos otherwise

  39. gurudeclan on September 23, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    Every time he says next, I imagine her walking over to him with that Macbook and breaking it off his mouth.

  40. Brian K Kinney on September 23, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    That dude must have been freezing since he needed to have his hood up.

  41. Daniel Reno on September 23, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    Snapshot quality..you need great light to make a great photo..Invest in some lighting!

  42. Thayne Tuason on September 23, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    Botanically speaking, the backsides of flowers are also important for identification, as well and just leaves and pods- so all is fair game and though it could be called art, it could also be scientifically useful.

  43. Keith Smith on September 23, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Should have shown all settings with each pic.

  44. Edwin Dekker on September 23, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    "Keukenhof" 😀 I love how you guys pronounce it XD

  45. Johnnybob Kadiddlehopper on September 23, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    I really thought that I would make it to the end without hearing Boskie but it wasn’t to be!

  46. muzictherpy on September 23, 2019 at 10:19 pm
