Oriental Cherry Tree with Spanish Moss – Spring Charleston Photographic Workshop

While out scouting for images this morning I found a white Oriental Cherry tree with Spanish moss hanging form its braches. The backdrop was a combination of red and purple azaleas which had an elegant look I try to find in the gardens and villages while I am out capturing images.

The Charleston Workshop starts tomorrow and the flowers are looking great. It was 37 degrees Fahrenheit again this morning when I was out shooting but weather.com tells me that it will be in the 50’s for the first morning shoot with the clients which will make it a little more pleasant for everyone and speed up the blooms. This weekend the gardens of Charleston will be at their prime and I am excited to work with everyone.

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
