Featured Photographer: Julie Bonney
Julie Bonney will be presenting a collection of flower photography for the First Friday Art Walk on June 7, 2019. Julie says, “Favorite photography subjects for many are flowers. They touch us in ways that open us to the natural world. However, the challenge is to showcase them in ways that are less common and create a desire in the viewer to stop and take them in. Using tulle, lace, optic choices, shallow depth of field, multiple exposures and more unusual angles of perspective helps to emphasize the ways in which flowers speak to our hearts.”
