Self-taught photographer Ashley Woodson Bailey worked as a floral designer for nearly two decades before a life-altering accident prevented her from going after her usual, larger scale projects. With a BFA in Art History and Art, Bailey sought out to create a lasting arrangement of florals, through the lens of her camera. Her premier collection, entitled “Dark”, was inspired by the transformation of a flower from its blossomed form to a dying stem, with a focus on preserving the change as a moment in time.
Here, Bailey spills a few of her tried and true tips for photographing florals.
