WORKSHOP: PHOTOGRAPHING FLOWERS FOR TRANSPARENCY USING A LIGHTBOX, presented by Padma Inguva
Monday, Oct. 29,2018, from 1-5 PM

Have you ever seen striking images of flowers that look transparent, and wondered how they did that? Padma Inguva, from East Windsor NJ will show us her techniques using a Lightbox to photograph flowers. You will have an opportunity to photograph blooms on the Lightbox and then Padma will demonstrate her post-processing techniques using Lightroom. If time permits, she will also show how she blends images using photoshop.






Equipment needed: You will need a camera (of course), a lens not longer than 50mm (macro not required), a tripod, a cable release for your camera (or you could use its self-timer), pen/paper to take notes. This workshop is limited to the first 12 people who sign up.

Our workshops are free, but you must be a current member to attend.

To sign up for this workshop, either sign up at a meeting or email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com.




You can view Jan Doyle's interview with Padma on Wyse Talk 

Emigrated from India, Padma Inguva made a home in New Jersey for 21/2 decades. She inherited the love of gardening from her father; Made a humongous garden and spends many hours every spring taking care of the plants bringing them back from hibernation. Photography followed as a natural progression as a way to capture the fruits of her labor with her camera making them permanent. From flowers and foliage in her own garden, Padma's photography playground extended into neighborhood gardens, nurseries and botanical gardens. She enjoys telling a story thru her images as she captures flowers thru all stages... from buds to decay. Although her photography has expanded to include architectural and travel photography,  she remains an avid floral photographer. Padma teaches individual and group workshops in person and online.
