Video: The Art of Flower Photography


In this B&H Event Space video, two of the world’s premier photographers of flora and fauna—Arthur Morris and Denise Ippolito—share the techniques they use to create dramatic, sharp, well-composed, properly exposed images of flowers and flower fields. Ippolito does great things with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS lens, while Morris often goes to longer focal lengths—he has been seen photographing tulips with a 600mm lens and teleconverter at Keukenhoff Gardens, in Holland. In addition to standard techniques, the video ends with Morris and Ippolito showing a wide range of abstract floral images, while describing artistic effects such as multiple exposures, sharp/soft blending, texture overlays, warping a flower, creating zoom/twirls, in-camera blurs, and many other creative effects.


Hey, the video is not complete!  It is cut off...why??????????

Hey Kathey, this looks facinating and I knew you would like to watch this. It is almost an hour long, I will have to come back to it later, to many other things calling my name now. Beautiful pictures!
