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 1pm 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.
Important note: we may have some longer drive days in order to reach the best fields at the time of the photo adventure. San Antonio will be the broad area (SAT is the suggested airport) but we will narrow down the exact location for accommodations as the season develops. Flexibility will be a key tool for those participating in this adventure but I assure you it will be worth it!
