This week, Friday Flowers is the subject of the photography course I am taking ,
Frugal Still Life Photography
from photographer Cheryl McCain.
How I arrived in this course is another example of the power of social media and staying connected. I learned about it, by chance, from my on-line friend Nina who mentioned it on Instagram. How do I know Nina? I’m pretty sure it was from another great course, Blogging Your Way. One thing leads to another with social media which is what pleases me and keeps me connected!

Cheryl states that included in the course is:
8 separate segments of the workshop where I share a different Still Life image and share my techniques on creating the image, including pull-back shots of the setup prior to shooting
My goal is to show you how to create lovely images without spending an arm and a leg to do so. 

We’re now in Week #2 and this week it’s all about cropping and space. Although flowers were certainly not the required subject, I had just bought this wonderful bunch of yellow tulips (my favorite flower) and with the brown paper, they seemed the perfect choice.
