Photographing Dahlias!

October 16 @ 9:00 am - December 18 @ 12:00 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

Dahlias provide some of the garden’s biggest and most spectacular blooms. The flowers come in many different styles, sizes and a rainbow of gorgeous colors. All are excellent cut flowers.

Please join us for a morning meet-up to photograph these beautiful blooms at Delightful Dahlias in Bethlehem. Bring your camera, macro and/or telephoto lens, diffuser in case there’s bright sun, reflector, and a tripod (although hand-holding your camera may be your best bet for maneuverability in between the rows).

Things to think about…be mindful of the light, be careful with your backgrounds, work on selective focus, be creative with aperture, shoot close-up, shoot flower portraits, create a high-key image, don’t forget the back of the flower, incorporate more than one flower in your images, create zoom blurs, try in-camera multiple exposures, and most importantly, slow down and practice the art of seeing.

Plan to meet at 9:00 am and we’ll shoot for a few hours. Shirlene Moser, the owner, would like a $5.00 donation for the local food bank, and in return you can take home a big, beautiful bouquet of dahlias. Keep in mind this place is a little rough around the edges, but the flowers are spectacular.

The address is 3826 Mockingbird Hill Rd, Bethlehem, PA 18015 (near Hellertown). Space is limited to 20 members. There is no rain date. Please click the Register button above to signup.
