Flowers of Red Butte Garden in June, on Film

by dav.d

Someone said that when you are showing your best work, your portfolio, don’t include flowers. Well, unless you are a flower photographer. People don’t need to see flowers, and unless the flowers are truly stunning they are portfolio worthy. Since is this just a blog post, I am going to share some flower photographs from Red Butte Garden.

Red Butte Garden is located near the University of Utah and is a beautiful location with flowers, paths, trees and more. They change the gardens depending on the scenery and it is just a few dollars to have access to the park. However, if you want portraits there, the do charge a lot of money. At the time of this blog post the fee is $100 plus the regular admission to the park. It is pricey but with the scenery and the garden it would be worth it for some awesome portraiture at a great location.

I went there last year with my 35mm film camera to photograph some flowers. It was part of a little photowalk with some other photographers. I photographed the Hasselblad of one of the photographers. Nice camera. I used my 35mm since it has an awesome macro lens and I thought that would be perfect for my flower photography. I had the film developed locally and I scanned and processed the film myself. These are great for computer desktop wallpaper. Fun stuff.
