Innovative techniques to produce personal and distinctive images to explore the beauty of flowers with John Humphrey FRPS.

Flowers are the most photographed of all subjects. This is not surprising since they are inherently beautiful and offer endless variety of shape, colour and texture. However, it can be difficult to find ways to portray flowers that are different from the countless existing images.

In this one-day workshop, John demonstrates a range of innovative approaches to flower photography designed to produce results that are personal to the photographer and that will stand out from other flower images.
