Flower Workshop in NYC with Barbara Bordnick

I just returned from a very educational workshop under the direction of floral photographer, Barbara Bordnick. We first went to the flower market in lower Manhattan and chose flowers to photograph. Then we learned a great deal about sophisticated lighting with strobes, much of which I do not think I will be able to duplicate.  Barbara and her assistants gave instructions on lighting, floral arrangements, and processing of the images for printing.  Once again, it is apparent the power of Photoshop!

The flowers photographed included tulips, peonies, poppies, and phalaenopsis orchids.

Here are a selection of the images I photographed this weekend.  Please give any comments and suggestions.
