"I didn't think flower photography could be so interesting, but the examples here with off camera flash and gels are exciting to see. A nice correlation between 'portrait' photography principles to still life. Sandy is concise and enthusiastic!" - Brian Schumacher

Hi and Welcome to our course "The Ultimate Masterclass For Creative Flower Photography" - A new tutorial in our photography series.

Crafting FANTASTIC images instead of BORING ones - this is especially important when photographing flowers and botanical locations. Many things can go wrong. For example, petals are very delicate. When the sun hits them from the wrong angle - their color bleaches out quickly. Instead of beautiful vibrancy, we see white patches.

Also - our eyes deceive us. We look at this fantastic location and think: "Oh, wow! It's so beautiful!" But when we try to capture this radiant field through our camera - the images appear flat and lackluster. Or with too much contrast. Or the wind made the capture blurry! Or - worst of all - the flowers look plain boring. You created an "okay" photograph. But NOT fine art. You wouldn't print this image or design wall art for your home.

But this is what we want to achieve, right? We want to create something special! How can you accomplish this? By learning our S.P.E.C.I.A.L recipe and our easy yet fun tricks!


In this course you will learn:

  • How to elevate your PHOTOGRAPHY to FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

  • How to master the power of Storytelling, Exposure, Composition, Illumination, Ambiance Feel and Lightroom (or Post-Production)

  • How to "SET THE SCENE" for your flower - from BORING to EXCITING

  • How to expose in natural light: From HDR bracketing to romantic looking images. Or: From vintage to funky designs. You decide!

  • How to create unique "light effects" with flashguns, gels, and simple accessories! If natural light photography is not "your thing" - then these tricks will spark your interest and inspiration for sure!

  • How to create compelling compositions, concepts, projects and so much more


At the end of this course, you'll be able to create the most beautiful "fine art" flower images. Instead of buying such photographs, you will be able to design them yourself! The only requirement: A DSLR, some accessories, a basic understanding of your camera's manual functions and: Being interested in becoming a more creative photographer!

Flower Photography has a great variety of techniques! Become a better photographer while having fun! Welcome, and see you in class!

The course had some interesting and useful tips that I can see myself using. The downside was that although hints and tips are provided they're not provided as a downloadable resource for ease of future reference, and more examples with explanations of shutter speed, aperture and ISO to get the desired outcomes would have been better. From a personal learning style I found the the graphics with the hand writing out the slide annoying, but that's down to personal preference.

O kadar kötü bir kurs ki yazmaya nereden başlayacağımı bilemedim . Aynı sıkıcı fotoğrafları tekrar ve tekrar göstermeniz üstüne tüy dikiyor. Tek cümleyle para ziyanlığı.

I think this was a great course. I learned techniques that I didn't know about. She did a good job of explaining everything. My only complaint, not enough demonstrations. I'm a visual learner, so for me, the more I see, the more I learn. Overall, it was a good course and great info!

Wonderful examples of creativity, I expected the usual macro techniques - pleasantly surprised that it goes further than that. Never thought about mixing gel photography with flowers, but the examples look pretty cool so I will give it a go

Sandy injects a lot of fun into what I thought might be a dry subject (flower photography) - but this is an interesting and different way of thinking about it. Still life was never my strong suit but there are good ideas here that can be applied not only to flowers but other still life photography as well. Some of the sample photographs are breathtaking.

Great shots! And new perspectives on flower photography - I confess to being an iPhone flower photographer point and shoot, despite enjoying portrait photography in a studio. This is giving me a lot of ideas to go out and try in my local park at least - the gel photographs are really quite something. Highly recommended for sure.

I didn't think flower photography could be so interesting, but the examples here with off camera flash and gels are exciting to see. A nice correlation between 'portrait' photography principles to still life. Sandy is concise and enthusiastic, keep going!
