The famous bluebonnets of Texas. A classic icon of the state and just one of a multitude of wildflower species that bloom across the Hill Country in spring. Join me as we explore the springtime splendor of Texas wildflowers!

We will focus on capturing these beautiful subjects from both wide and macro perspectives. Starting out in the mornings, when dew drops may be present, we will work through the morning hours visiting different fields and different species. Upon breaking for lunch, we avail ourselves on some quintessential, small town, mom-and-pop eateries for a hearty lunch and assorted photography-related conversations. Come afternoon, we will return to find pastoral scenes where sunset can be utilized to highlight our floral subjects. On the third day we will wrap-up by 10am to allow for travel or exploring on your own.
As colorful as the flowers are, you should be prepared to go home with a wide range of images in your portfolio. I provide a one hour virtual processing or image review session for each participant of this photo adventure.
