GENERAL EXHIBITION – Wildflowers.
Oct 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

GENERAL EXHIBITION  –  Wildflowers.  

Subject and open – Print and projected 

Create an image using wildflowers, where colour and form play important roles in expressing beauty.  Carefully select the colours (including the background) so that they complement or harmonise with each other.  Consider using a shallow depth of field to produce a pleasing bokeh, and whether you need to focus stack the image to get the flower(s) in focus.  Simplicity can be very successful.
