Revealed by Light: The Art and Magic of Lightbox Photography
Starting with a blank canvas, I will show in this presentation how we can use technique to support artistry in flower photography. Part of this presentation will be in Keynote, and part as a demonstration. Introduction will include my inspirations and my motivations for doing this kind of photography. Realizing that the goal is create beautiful pictures, the first step will look at elements of floral design on a flat service with examples of each element and then how to put them together into a pleasing and artistic picture. Following this segment, I will arrange flowers on a lightbox in a variety of ways, showing possibilities for different compositions.
I will use keynote to demonstrate the process of photographing an arrangement. Finally, I will show in Photoshop how to process a sequence of images, creating a picture. There will be a short slide show with some of my pictures set to music. I will also have examples of printed pictures for people to see and/or purchase.
