The simple practice of photographing flowers has influenced all my photography. During the breakout, I will share some of the specific techniques that I use to create my flower portraits. A variety of blooms will be set out in the venue, each with a printed texture background.
Participants will have the opportunity to make their way around the room, as if on a garden ramble. They will be encouraged to slow down, to look, and to ‘see’ their subject. The aim will be to discover what is wondrous in a simple flower, to find the quirky, the unique, to look for a wayward petal, a luscious curve; to work towards creating an image that is more than just a simple flower render.
