Teaching wildflower photography

Recently I was invited to teach a short workshop on wildflower photography at the Mueller Development prairie at the site of the old Austin airport. The weather was nice but for the wind. Wind seems to always provide a hardship for flower photography. I coached the attendees including my dear friend and long-time colleague, Cindy Dyer, how to make a wind break from three sheets of foam-core board hinged together into a triangle. This bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis) is one of the resulting images of the day.
