Attendee Spotlight | Flowers on Film Philly Workshop

We had a little one day workshop all about shooting flowers on film in Philadelphia recently and are absolutely loving the photos we're seeing from attendees! These photos are by P. Thien Photography and they are just stunning. Here's what she had to say about the workshop...

I attended the Film Photographer’s Workshop in Philadelphia this January. When I arrived at the location, I was immediately impressed by the space and beautiful colors. I felt the workshop was planned perfectly, it couldn’t have been better organized. Sarah and Ben were incredibly friendly and personable, as well as the other attendees. I felt a great sense of community among the participants, everyone was passionate about discussing techniques and their perspective on film photography and flowers. Sarah and Ben provided talks, examples, and shooting scenarios that pushed me out of my comfort zone. But at the same time, they were very attentive, providing individual guidance and hands on instruction to ensure I felt comfortable. I learned so much in the short few hours of the workshop, and I can’t wait to apply it.

This workshop was specifically about photographing flowers on film, how to get accurate color and take incredible photos of flowers that florists will love you for. We also practiced using lighting with a softbox and discussed metering and a few other topics. We hope to bring these fun little workshops around the country and are working on other cities to hold them in. If you want to see us come to your city, let us know! 

Many thanks to our amazing creative team who we couldn't have done this without:
