The rolling hills of Central Texas explode in a kaleidoscope of color each spring as bluebonnets, paintbrush, white poppies, purple coneflowers, and evening primrose make up just a few of the varieties flashing the fields with eye-catching color. From carpeted hillsides to lined roadways, area photography expert, Laurence Parent, knows the best locations to capture these sprays of pink, purple, red and yellow.
Departing from Austin, this workshop will work its way to Fredericksburg and Gonzales, two of the state’s most prolific areas for abundant wildflowers. During our five days together, we will roam the foothills and backroads of Texas stopping at multiple locations to create compositions of the vast rolling landscapes and intricate macro scenes.
While in Gonzales, we will visit the lush tropical oasis of Palmetto State Park to photograph the dwarf Palmetto plants and the other interesting botanicals found in and around the ponds and swamps.
Of course, along the way, we will build upon our compositional skills through image critiques and field instruction. So if you like wildflowers, then this is the perfect workshop for you.
