  • JOIN ME ON A ONE ON ONE INSTRUCTIONAL WORKSHOP FOCUSING ON CLOSE UP PHOTOGRAPHY OF FLOWERS, EXOTIC PLANTS AND FAUNA. 

    YOU DON'T NEED A MACRO LENS OR SPECIAL EQUIPMENT TO ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP...ANY CAMERA WILL WORK.

    (this event is indoors so no need to worry about the weather)

    I will cover the settings that work best on your camera for depth of field, dramatic colors that Pop and your cameras built in creative controls. After our quick camera settings overview, we will casually stroll through the gardens focusing on key elements to help you understand the principles of close up photography.

    (images on this page were captured with a point and shoot camera)

    The main focus of this workshop is on how to see Shapes, Lines, Form and Color, and how they repeat in nature and in your Flower and Fauna images.

    Again this is a ONE on ONE instructional workshop focusing on each participant's individual needs.

    The workshop will last approximately 2 hours and  for those interested we can go to lunch and discuss our images after.

    I will hold a follow up meeting reviewing your images with gentile critique and tips. Time and date TBD.
