Photogeneralist.com: Anita Bower, Photographer Profile from Dan Creighton on Vimeo.

Anita Bower is a friend and photographer from Chester County, Pennsylvania.  Her primary focus is flower photography which can be viewed at her photography blog at http://anitabower.aminus3.com/.  I think when you see her flower images you will agree that she just doesn’t just take photographs of flowers but creates art in the process. In my opinion many, if not most, of her flower photographs are of the finest to be found online. Her equipment and setup used to take the flower photographs is very simple as you will see in the video. The technique of using layer mask overlays for color and texture is equally simple. I will present a video tutorial on that Photoshop technique in more detail in a few days.

Anita recommends that viewers also take a look at other artists that inspire her-

I just unearthed the name of the photographer who taught me this set up for photographing flowers indoors. Her name is Lois Adominte and here is a link to her gallery http://www.betterphoto.com/Premium/default.aspx?id=208850&mp=V3
Generous photographers such as Lois and Dan and many others have been invaluable in my photographic journey. Thank you all!
