See-Take-Make with Celia Henderson

4. JULY. REPEAT of The Sweet Pea

Date and Time: Two Sessions:

July 2 & 4  10-11.30 pm

The Workshops

What will we cover:

  • What do you see
  • Location, planning and outcomes
  • What’s our approach
  • What equipment, camera, lenses, accessories
  • By how much (if at all) can we control the lighting
  • Camera settings to achieve your visualisation
  • A lot of post processing skills – to enhance the capture and complete the vision

Each workshop will incorporate one or more approach and discuss the suggested equipment (including a pair of scissors and a dental mirror), how to manage the light, backgrounds, composition and which post processing tools give the ultimate results

Covering a whole variety of approaches – just look at the list …

Pick a flower a month and test your vision, photographic skills and creativity.

The Sweet Pea


In this step by step guide, I will talk and demo you through visualisation of this image, the original flower, what I saw and how I processed this single bloom sweet pea portrait.

The flower vase

The Pep Ventosa technique. How to fill your flower vase, how to turn the vase multiple times. Collecting all the images and using Photoshop to create a layer stack of separate images, processing through ACR, blending and setting opacity, cloning and removal of unwanted pixels. Cloning to add extra petals – how to use the Clone stamp tool creatively as well as a healing tool.

Colour matching, panels, overlays and oils

A walk through on capturing images with a narrow aperture, the risks of diffraction. Using smoothing techniques in Photoshop. The different tools available to colour match images and how colour lookup tables, creating your own colour overlays can help to create a cohesive body of work. In this workshop I will show you how to create your own colour lookup tables, colour overlays and apply colour matching techniques.

Motion Blur and Movement

One of my favourite, quick and easy methods for creating motion blur – capture the image as sharply as you can and then in post production, a few duplicate layers, smart objects and a walk through of the different motion blurs. Finally add a simple mask and combine the sharp with the blur.

 In these workshops we’ll start at the end of the process by visualising the finished masterpiece, consider your intended output (print medium, digital). That directs us to the take stage, what equipment, lens, camera settings, backgrounds, compositions, lighting, do we need. And before you even click the shutter button, reflect on the features and magic that can be applied from the post processing software.

Whether you are seeking to create a sharp botanical study, a still life, a competition entry or a dreamy watercolour painting, let me guide you through the “See, Take, Make” workflow. With each workshop putting seasonal flowers in the limelight, we will put our vision plan to the test and consider how to best capture the shot(s) and which tools will be required to complete the post processing workflow, so you are fully prepared and motivated to capture the tulips of spring, the sweet peas of summer, the glorious dahlias and rudbeckia of autumn and the resilient snowdrops in winter.
