20th July - Polina Plotnikova FRPS, EFIAP

In Part 1, Polina will talk about her approach to flower photography which is similar to portrait photography. “For every flower and plant that I photograph, I always try to find a unique look, study its mood and character and unlock its hidden beauty.”

In Part 2, Polina will talk about composition, light, textures and colours that she uses when creating her still life set-ups.
“My approach is to create an image in my mind's eye and proceed to take photographs only after all details have been thought through.” There will be a few schematic illustrations to show her studio hardware and demonstrate various stages of putting together a still life.
