EXPO: Floral Photography with Passion with Padma Inguva (AIP)

Class Code:
UUU7110
Skill Level:
Everyone

Join Padma Inguva as she shares information about some of her techniques in creating stunning flower portraits! These techniques include photographing flowers on Lightbox, multiple exposures both in Camera and via Photoshop, applying textures to floral images, selective focus, blurred backgrounds, compositional elements, backlighting, and bokeh. This program also includes tips on processing colors which are considered difficult to photograph, like red and purple.

In her own words: "My goal as a photographer is to get people to slow down, unite with the natural world and absorb the beauty of flowers, create an oasis in this rapid, constantly demanding stressful daily life. There is no better way to escape this running-around than spending time looking through a lens. I want to set people on a path of inspiration, hope, joy, and love that comes from an appreciation of these tiny treasures all around us. It gives me immense joy in taking you down a beautiful journey into flowers through my lens where you admire and observe flowers with a whole new perspective and create art that lasts far longer than the flower itself.”

PADMA INGUVA called New Jersey her home for over two and a half decades after she immigrated from the artistically rich lands of India. In her early years, she inherited a love for gardening from her father, which led her to nurture an abundant garden in her backyard. She spent several seasons nourishing some rare and familiar plants very patiently and enjoyed being rewarded with bountiful blooms. Her garden would be in full bloom during the short New Jersey summers and her love for enjoying these picturesque landscapes was short lived each year.

Photography was as a natural progression to capture and permanently etch the fruits of her labor which eventually evolved into fine art. What started as capturing flowers and foliage from her own garden, quickly extended into neighborhood gardens, roadside wildflowers, local nurseries, and botanical gardens broadening her playground in photography. She relishes telling a story of the progression of a flower through its various stages via the images she captures from buds to decay.
