Photographing Gardens and Flowers
Photographing a garden can be visually overwhelming. Where do you start? In the garden, the hidden beauty in plants, the natural landscape, and man-made objects are often overlooked for the obvious. Take a walk in the garden with Josh and learn photographic techniques that will lift flower and garden photographs to a higher level. This presentation will inspire photographers to see and create striking photographs using in-camera and software enhancement techniques found in Lightroom, Photoshop/Photoshop Elements, and the new MacPhun Luminare.
Josh has presented photography workshops at the Smithsonian National Orchid Show, Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at JMU, U.S. Botanic Garden, Brookside Gardens, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, American Horticultural Society Garden School, Adkins Arboretum, and Longwood Gardens.
In addition to being a former Canon Camera instructor, Josh speaks at camera and garden clubs, judges photographic competitions, and exhibits his photographs in gallery shows.
He is a member of Garden Writers Association, National Association of Photoshop Professionals, and member and past president of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society.
Josh was voted best garden club speaker in 2005 and was a judge for the 2009 Garden Writers Association National Media Awards and the 2010 Mid-Atlantic Nature Photography Expo.
Longwood Gardens selected Josh as its Instructor of the Month (October 2010) and was a selected photographer to assist the public in photographing Bruce Munro’s Light: Installations (2012).
