Weekend Giveaway: Eyes Open E-Course

Written by
Floret

For the last several days, I’ve been racing around getting the farm all gussied up for the kickoff of the Floret workshop season.  Everyone here is filled with nervous excitement. Tomorrow morning bright and early, we’ll be welcoming a small group of folks from across the U.S. and Canada to our Flower Farming Intensive, a three-day workshop where we’ll be sharing some of our very best growing tricks, design techniques and tips for building a flower-based business.  Among the many tips I’ll be sharing, is the emphasis on good photography to document and share the beauty you are growing and designing.

ERINLITTLE_LESLEY-6537A few years ago, Chris and I took the Eyes Open Creative Photography E-Course and it was a real game-changer.  As I’ve shared previously, completing the e-course is what enabled us to hone our photography skills and really take Floret’s blog, website and social media posts to the next level.

Erin Little is the talented photographer and blogger, who created the course.  She has a great eye for capturing everyday life in such beautiful, creative and compelling ways. The approachable style and flexible format of Erin’s e-course made it possible for me to finally understand all of the photography terms that I previously found so intimidating and confusing.  I recommend the course to everyone who attends a Floret on-farm workshop and anyone who is looking to up their game when it comes to taking great photos–whether they are of flowers, family or whatever your subject is on the other side of the lens.

ERINLITTLE-1242

To celebrate the start of the 2016 Floret workshops, I’m giving away free registration to the Eyes Open Creative Photography e-course that starts in May 2nd to FOUR lucky Floret readers.

ENTRIES NOW CLOSED.  Thanks for entering!  Winners:  we’ll be in touch with details on how to get you registered.  Enjoy!

    Good morning Erin,

    I’ve been trying to sign up to your workshops with no luck, because everytime I receive your newsletter the upcoming workshop is sold out. I never get an information about it before it is no sold out.

    I tried to send an email to [email protected], and it didn’t not work either. I got a message back stating this email does not exist.

    Maybe I’m doing something wrong, I don’t know, but could you please point me the right direction?

    Thank you so much.

    Oh! I might be too late for this, but I just wanted to say thank you for your generosity… and I would love to take this course! I just started my little flower farm this year and love taking photos but know I have SO much to learn in this realm. My biggest challenge in photography is a lack of confidence, I am really intimidated by all the different settings so I tend to play it safe and not venture into manipulating the camera much. Thanks again!

    My biggest challenge is my dark/outdated apartment! There are so few areas that receive good light, and it’s hard to hide the not so attractive apartment features… Learning how to create a beautiful, bright setting in my apartment would be a miracle AND a dream!

    Hi Erin!
    I have been an invisible follower of yours for the last two years – your breathtaking photos and insightful blog articles have inspired me deeply. I wanted you to know how much I appreciate the work that you do! I’m starting a cut flower and herb operation this year in NYC and among the many things I am nervous about in starting a new farm business, one of the things I am most nervous about is presenting good photography! It’s the first time I would be sharing my work publicly in this way, and that’s tough for introverts. I want to be able to share the beauty, emotion, and wonder that the farm and flowers fill my heart with my community and customers (the community I still need to find and support!). My greatest challenge is translating the depth and awe that I feel and see in that moment. Understanding how to get the lighting and angles right with the second eye that is my camera. It’s also made extra hard because the shooting is impromptu and speedy between harvesting and arranging. This course would be a godsend at a time when I am really strapped for resources and time. I know participating would break open up my ability to share what I do with others well and hopefully inspire and bring joy to them, the way you have for me! Have the love and passion I have for my work create a space where others can share in it too.

    Thank you for this wonderful and generous opportunity and all that you do. Keeping my fingers crossed! :)

    I have great ideas, and they all turn out so terrible that I delete everything, with no photos to share….. You inspire me, I just need your brain and eyes,….. Oh and maybe your hands too…. Smile Thanks so much for all you do…. I share with everyone I know your flowers and blog…..

    :) Some of these responses crack me up. Glad to know I’m not the only one struggling. One of the biggest challenges to doing/starting this business alone is not having the knowledge base of all the things I need to do. I just bought a camera, because my pathetic phone camera wasn’t doing my arrangements justice. Now that I have a decent camera, it would be helpful to know how to do things and capture the arrangements /farmers/ growers in the best light possible. Winning the e-course would help me tremendously. This would help me finish my website too!

    I’ve been wanting to sign my husband up for this e-course for the LONGEST time! Our biggest challenge is that our little business relies entirely on me for photography, which means that I’m both overstretched and never in the actual photos!

    Hm. I think my biggest challenge is focusing – as in, not being overwhelmed by options. I’m pretty good at managing the manual settings, but making the photos look less flat is tricky. There are so many options, so many ways to go, but it’s hard to zero in on which option is best. I need to be able to identify what would remedy a certain problem best.

    Hello! My biggest challenge when photographing flowers is choosing the right depth-of-field for focus, while still balancing that with the lighting. Taking a picture of a bouquet that is up close and then switching to a more landscape style photo in the garden is going to require some adjustments, and I reeeally need help learning how to go from one to the other!

    This is a generous giveaway. Thank you so much for offering it! It’s so frustrating to be surrounded by beauty and not be able to share it with my customers. Framing the subject and having it turn out as you see it is my largest hurdle. Since all things web related are SO image dependent nowadays, if you don’t have good photos, you may just get skipped over.

    I find that with photography, like everything else, the more time you spend taking photo’s, driving to places at sunrise or sunset to try and capture the moment, and look for the little bits of magic the more it comes naturally. I’ve recently had a change of camera and I’m finding it hard to get out there and experiment with is it as I feel like I’ve lost my mojo and I’m overthinking it too much so this course would be great to get me back in the swing of it!

    As my husband and I are starting a small flower and produce farm, I really want to capture beautiful photos from the beginning to share. This is my first time working with a DSLR camera and it can be intimidating and a large learning curve. My biggest challenge is manipulating the focus to bring certain pieces of the photo into full focus while the background is soft and less in focus. Also, I am eager to learn more about how to use and work with natural light since many of my photos will be taken outdoors in natural light.

    My greatest challenge in photography is in capturing moving objects. I love capturing textures of plants and rusty farm equipment…and I do well at that. It’s the humans that give me trouble ;)

    Thanks for sharing what you used to learn how to take amazing pictures! My biggest challenge is definitely try to get what’s in my head to come out in the picture!

    I think my biggest challenge when it comes to photography (especially photographing flowers) is capturing light in a way that illuminates the beauty to it’s fullest potential.

    Oh, to win this contest….my whole family would thank you! ;)
    MY biggest challenge is that I REALLY want to get good pictures, so I take 150 pictures to try to get one great one & take up loads of computer memory because I don’t want to delete them.
    I’d love to start taking one great picture instead of a bunch of junky ones!

    My biggest challenge is I have no idea what I’m doing!

    This class would be so great! My biggest challenge when it comes to photography is shooting in low light situations.
