Artistic Floral Photography Academy

We will cover shooting, composition, approach, background, foreground, selective focus. We will learn how to shoot your own textures & will cover editing techniques in Lightroom & Photoshop. Live classes, assignments & image reviews will run over a 2 month period beginning in January 2021 and take place twice weekly. Each session will run approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. A schedule will be sent out at least one month in advance. Recordings will be available to all participants for one year and accessible here on your Dashboard. Everyone will also be invited to a private Facebook group.
