2015 Student Wildflower Images

Today’s post comes from last spring, when I conducted several of my “Woodland Wildflower ‘Shorty’ Workshops” on a Missouri woodland. Right after these workshops, I had my accident and head injury, followed by surgery and a long recuperation. Recently, I ran across some of the images the participants sent me, so I thought I’d share some of their work.

The first group of images comes from Pat, one of my longest photography students. Pat has taken many of my photography classes and has joined me on many of my in-the-field workshops. Here are a few of Pat’s woodland wildflower images:

Ellen W. has taken several of my photography classes. The woodland wildflower workshop was her first workshop with me. Even though Ellen had the disadvantage of not having a macro lens to work with, she created some really nice images with her “normal” lens:

Tammy W. attended one of my last workshops of the season. Tammy has not attended any of my photography classes, but I have worked with Tammy 1:1 on composition and exposure. Here are some of Tammy’s images from the workshop:

I think you will agree that these students have talent for photographing woodland wildflowers!

Currently, our temperatures continue to be above normal (near 70F today!) and the remainder of the week is forecast to be above 60F! Also, we have a good chance of rain moving in for Tuesday. Putting all of this together, I have a good feeling that the woodland wildflowers will begin emerging from the leaf litter very soon. Later this week, I’m planning on visiting this woodland and see how things are growing. And I hope to again conduct some “shorty” workshops over the next few weeks. If you have an interest, please contact me at:  showmenaturepix@hotmail.com and I will put you on the list to receive announcements of scheduled “shorty workshops”.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Both Ellen and Tammy shoot with Nikon
  • Pat shoots with Canon
