Wildflowers in the wild of Kent
I have signed up for workshop photographing wildflowers in the deepest wilds of Kent with www.robertcanis.com. We’ve already had to postpone due to the terribly tardy Spring and the lack of flowers. After the protracted journey it really does feel like I'm in the wilds of somewhere. The other photographers have driven nearly as far as I've travelled and we all pile into Robert's jeep to head for our first protected wood.
After Robert has fired off a few test shots, we each establish our little station along the path. Tripods erected with legs splayed to ensure proximity to the ground, macro lenses screwed in, or in my case, macro settings applied we are ready for our first shots. The idea is to get this purple doyen of the flower world offset in our frame with a pleasing blurry bokeh of the surrounding greenery in the background.
