It was a mix of those who have worked with flowers a lot and those who had no experience. The best combination really. I think there is something about a group of people with a spirit of adventure and goodwill that lifts everyone up, no matter their experience level.
And ah, the agony and ecstasy of a manual camera. The ISO was set really high and gave the photos a grainy sixties feel. I feel like these arrangement photos could have been pulled out of an old "Life Magazine"!
