DAVID LASCHAPEL – GLOSSY PHOTOGRAPHER, PROVOCATIONAL CLIPMAKER AND MASTER OF SURREALISTIC GLAMOR

American David LaChapelle is known both in the fashion world and in show business. He is one of the most famous glossy photographers of our time, included by the American Photo Association in the top 10 most important people in photography.

GETTING THE BEST FLOWER PHOTOS

 Take some pictures

At their seminars, I always advise students to follow the rule of “peeling onions in layers.” This method is not only about photographing flowers. I rarely take just one photograph of a flower and only from one angle.

You can distract yourself and start shooting other flowers or objects that attract, but then you need to come back again and look at the flower from all sides with a fresh look, and then again and again, as if removing layer by layer from your vision, peering every time in more and more detail. I took this approach from my many years of experience when I discovered that the more you examine the subject, the more you can discover it for yourself. Continue reading
