Special Presentation – “Is Your Flower Photography Boring? Let Me Help!” – by Mike Moats for our January Education Night

Mike Moats has joined us previously as a judge for a special macro photography contest we had a couple of years ago. This time he will be talking about macro flower photography (remember the Exhibit Assignment in March is Macro Photography). So please join us for a special education night on Thursday, January 26, 2023, at 7 PM ET.

Presentation Summary

Are you feeling like your flower photography is lacking something and is boring. There are many different styles and ways to create better flower images that will stand out. This will be an in-depth session on creating unique and interesting flower images.

Who Should Attend?

If you are at all interested in macro photography you should not miss this one! Some of the techniques Mike will talk about apply to other small subjects. Macro is a genre we should all have in our bag of photo tricks as you can make macro images anywhere! I create macro images in my home, at the local parks and botanical gardens, and definitely when I am traveling. I may be shooting an epic landscape but there will be macro subjects right in front of me as well! REMEMBER, look behind you, look to the sides and for sure always look up and down! There is almost always something else to shoot and many times it is even more interesting and a better subject than what caught your attention in the first place!

I have known Mike for a number of years and have attended his Bootcamps, one of his annual Macro Summits, and a macro workshop he did in conjunction with Madeline Island School of Arts in Tucson, AZ. When you think of macro photographers, he should be the first to come to mind! His images are amazing and his teaching style is laid back and intense at the same time!
