Joyce is a professional flower photographer and educator on flower composition and unique approaches to flower photography. In her presentation, she uses her work to illustrate photographic techniques in the hopes that other photographers will find something they can use in their own photography, whether the subject is a flower or not. In discussing flower photography she will cover lighting, composition, selective focus, focus stacking, and post-processing.
Joyce Dumas, a co-founder of the Blue Ridge Mountain Photographers, has been involved in photography on various levels for 40 years. She was a photojournalist and reporter before becoming a magazine editor and then a freelance writer/photographer. When Joyce moved into the North Georgia Mountains with her family, the beauty of the mountains inspired her to concentrate on nature photography. Joyce teaches photography and digital imaging, gives presentations throughout the Southeast, and has written two photography textbooks.
