Flora in Monochromatic (Best of student’s work)

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!
Anna Blatterman 

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.
Jay Salzman

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.

Best of Photographing Flora – our student’s work

Our February’s PHOTOGRAPHING FLORA course at BPSOP just finished and it was again a fantastic time spent with our students! We have to admit, that being in the company of photographers and flora enthusiasts is a wonderful combination!

We have enjoyed creative work of our students so much, that it would be a shame not to share their fantastic pictures with the rest of the world. As image speaks for the thousands words, we will let you enjoy their work and their feedback below.

We are opening next PHOTOGRAPHING FLORA course in April, please join us here and learn how to take creative shots of flora too.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you in class!

Just enjoyed another one of your critiques. Thank you for an excellent course. This was my first experience with BPSOP so I was curious to see how things went. I will definitely consider another course. As for flora photography, I have always been an outside in the garden or on hiking trails kind of flora shooter. Your class has stretched my creative approach to nature. I still love the “capture” of things growing – akin to flora portrait work I guess – but, you have inspired me to try new things which I will continue to do. Thank you very much.
Mary Jo Beck

 

Many thanks to Monika and Patrik for an excellent course. It has been most enjoyable and I have learned a lot. I hope some time you do a followup course.
Maureen

 

Thanks Patrik and Monika, I too really enjoyed the class. I have taken other BPSOP classes, and admit that I was most nervous about taking this class. I learned a lot and it helped build up my confidence when taking flora pictures. Unfortunately, I’m thinking that, over the next few weeks, our house will no longer resemble a plant nursery like it has over the last four weeks 😉

Thank you both so much. I learned a lot from you and really enjoyed the class. I still have many techniques to try and you’ve given me a lot to think about. I’ve certainly learned that flora photography is not as easy as many people might think. I thank you for your honest feedback. It has helped me grow as a photographer.

  • Bryan & Chris, What a great class. I just want to tell you how much I learned by taking this course. I have been shooting for more than 20 years and avid fan of you and your photography. I needed something to jump start my photography since I retired recently, and this course was exactly what I needed. I recommend this course to anyone wanting to start learning or need a refresher. Thanks you so much for the work you do in helping your students become much better photographers. On to the next class and as I say to you both "you keep teaching" Read More
