Innovative techniques to produce personal and distinctive images to explore the beauty of flowers with John Humphrey FRPS.

Flowers are the most photographed of all subjects. This is not surprising since they are inherently beautiful and offer endless variety of shape, colour and texture. However, it can be difficult to find ways to portray flowers that are different from the countless existing images.

In this one-day workshop, John demonstrates a range of innovative approaches to flower photography designed to produce results that are personal to the photographer and that will stand out from other flower images.

Topics covered include:

Pressed, dried and frozen flowers, revealing new shapes and textures.

Cameras, lenses and lights, the ideal set-up for flower photographs.

Innovative use of software, how software can transform flower images.

Macro and close-up flowers, to show detail we don’t usually notice.

This workshop consists of presentations and demonstrations. In the afternoon there is an opportunity for delegates to use their own cameras to try out some of the lighting and composition techniques using equipment and arrangements set up in the studio.

A follow-on workshop will be available for delegates to practice the more advanced techniques, and to use their own laptops for Photoshop transformations of flower images.

What to bring:

Delegates should bring a camera and tripod. The studio will provide flower subjects and other equipment including lighting.
