Inspired by The American Rose Society (ARS) and eight rose books, this comprehensive PhotoBotanic Guide to Photographing Roses covers techniques mastered over 30 years of shooting the queen flower of the plant kingdom, but applies to any garden flower.
The 92-page soft cover book showcases the rose, the queen of flowers. Roses are grown for the singular beauty of their flowers, as shrubs intermixed in gardens, and for bouquets. They inspire photographers no matter where they are found, but how does the photographer know which techniques work best in each situation?
Organized as a series of lessons as chapters: Working in the Garden; The Hero Shot; Light and Color; The Rose Bouquet; and advanced Special Techniques of photostacking and photo illustration.
