Flowers are an endless source of subjects for artistic photography. You can grow your own, subjects or purchase them from florists, the local farmers market, or even your favorite supermarket. So year-round, whatever the weather you can still capture beautiful images.
This presentation will cover gear, lighting, composition & backgrounds, and special techniques that can be used to capture flower images in a way that will make beautiful wall décor or knock the socks off your viewers in a gallery or a photo competition. A few tips and tricks for post processing will also be included.

They have traveled extensively throughout the United States, photographing both iconic locations and subject matter found along less traveled back roads. Favorite subjects for Sharon include, landscapes, nature, architecture and images that evoke the past. She relies not only on the technical skills but the feeling and emotion she wants to communicate. Her portfolio includes color and monochrome as well as infrared images.
