Flowers are among the first subjects that all new photographers seek. When I first got into photography, the first thing I did was head to the local nature center to find some flowers to photograph. Flowers are colorful, they don’t move and they don’t mind being photographed. They are therefore an excellent way to learn about and experiment with lenses, filters, exposure, composition, and special photographic techniques and effects.
This workshop was filmed Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.
