Floral Photography Meetup - Central Park, New York, New York - 3 pm - 2 hours
Central Park is in the heart of Manhattan, and it includes many beautiful gardens, with opportunities to practice floral photography, and bokeh.
Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in out-of-focus pars of an image. For our purposes, this means highlighting the flowers, with the greenery behind it blurred, or the opposite. This is done, primarily by adjusting the aperture of the cameras.
We will start by manipulating everyones aperture on their individual cameras, and seeing the different effects.
