Join us for our Virtual Opening Night of the 2020-2021 season.
Join Jackie Kramer as she takes us on a journey through her digital garden where she will share a variety of techniques that she uses to bring out the character in floral subjects. She will offer examples showing how to reflect the personality of a flower and how to shoot straightforward macro images with selective focus, shoot-throughs, abstracts, multiples, textures and more. Hear her rationale as it applies to decisions in the field pertaining to selection of the subject, background, approach, composition, lighting, exposure, and depth of field. You will leave with a desire to put some of these ideas into action as you create your own unique images.
Jackie has offered to do a couple of editing demos as well as showing how she would process some of our floral images!
Jackie has been photographing the natural world, with an emphasis on flowers, since the age 16. She is at home in the field shooting wildflowers, in botanical gardens, private gardens, and in her home studio, i.e. the kitchen. Jackie is a KelbyOne instructor who has received international acclaim for her images. Her work has been published in magazines, such as Photoshop User, Portfolio, LensWork, The Photographer Magazine (Texas School Dec/Jan 2020), and on the cover of NANPA Expressions 2019.
Jackie’s true passion is to encourage people to live their legacy. The majority of her time has been spent in cultivating and nurturing an active Facebook group, Phlorography – Artistic Floral Photography, that she started in May 2015, which now has nearly 7,000 passionate floral photographers from around the world. She is committed to supporting other photographers and using photography as a medium to build relationships and enrich each other’s lives.
