Monochromatic images are very powerful, so it is not a surprise that monochromatic flower images look even more amazing!

How to take monochromatic flora pictures? There are two simple ways:

1) get closer and fill your frame only with that one particular flower or its petals only

2) work on your background and use the color matching your flower. And by matching we mean the same color or a very similar tone/hue/shade of that color

Simple right? 😉

If you are not sure what monochromatic means – here’s a short recap. Monochromatic comes from the Greek word monos meaning one, and khroma meaning color.

Student’s pictures explain the monochromatic topic the best. We are inviting you to see som examples in the gallery below, how our dear students from previous PHOTOGRAPHING FLORA classes created beautiful monochromatic images.  Such images are really impressive!


And what do our students say about Photographing Flora class?

I enjoyed experimenting with all these techniques! Wonderful class! Thank you!

Thanks Monika & Patrik. Great class! Learned quite a lot from your extensive workshop materials, and challenging assignments. My floral photography endeavors will continue to improve.

I find that watching video critiques of everyone’s photos is so valuable. You explain things very well, Patrik! This is a fantastic class and I’m learning so much from everyone in it.
