COVID-19 Update: For all in-person workshops and trips, Santa Fe Workshops requires that all participants attending be fully vaccinated (per definition of the CDC) and provide proof of vaccination. This requirement applies to students, staff, and instructors.
If your flower photographs are less than spectacular, this is the workshop for you! Join fine-art photographer Kathleen Clemons as she leads you through a plethora of techniques for creating less literal, more imaginative flower photographs. Kathleen covers every aspect of making stunning portraits of blooms and blossoms, including:
Each day includes a presentation, group critiques of assignments, and photographing out in the field, where you benefit from hands-on instruction from Kathleen. Throughout, we discover how in-camera and post-processing techniques can be strategically applied to create more artistic imagery.
As you begin to perceive flowers in new and exciting ways, your own method of seeing evolves, making you a more careful—and more compelling—photographer. The camera looks both ways; why not put more of yourself in your floral images?
Working knowledge of digital workflow on your laptop computer and manual mode on your digital SLR or mirrorless camera. Participants must be able to download, select, and transfer images to their own jump drive for class each day.
Participants are responsible for making their own accommodation arrangements in Santa Fe. On-campus accommodations are not currently available.
