Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Kathleen Clemons On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

June 6, 2018

Welcome to episode 059 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Kathleen Clemons!

I had a great time speaking with Kathleen on the podcast this week. She was gracious enough to join me to discuss some of her favorite topics. Kathleen is a photographer from the coast of Maine. Primarily a nature photographer, Kathleen is known for her creative use of natural light and unique compositions. Her work is represented worldwide by Corbis and Getty Images. Lensbaby recently named her the "Georgia O' Keeffe of Flower Photography". With a degree in education, and a passion for both photography and teaching, she loves to teach others how to improve their photography skills.

I know you'll like this week's podcast, especially if you're wanting to get into macro photography or have an interest in flower photography! 

We covered some great topics this week, including:

1. How Kathleen got into photography.

2. Flower photography.

3. Tips for macro photography.

4. Using Lensbaby lenses for flower photography.

5. Adding textures to photos in post.

Over on Patreon this week, Kathleen and I had a fabulous conversation about best practices in flower photography.
