Workshop description:
Wild flowers are one of the main attractions of the Sonoran Desert and definitely the highlight of the year. The emphasis of this workshop in on Color, and color is what we will be looking for, and finding, in a year which promises to be a good one for wildflowers. Bring a variety of lenses, from macro to wild angle -for those foreground-background images- to telephoto -to compress elements and superimpose color and shapes. This is one workshop which will bring once in a lifetime images since spring flowering patterns do not repeat themselves from one year to the next. You will perform Photographic Skill Enhancement Exercises all day on Color as a Photographic Subject.
