Come to this fun Botanical Garden class to learn of the many ways to photograph and document garden life. You will learn dynamic composition, camera angles and lighting techniques while enjoying the botanical garden at the picturesque setting of dusk.

We will focus on capturing plants, trees, flowers, grasses, rocks, and soil in artistic ways. Images will be made of components in their natural settings, as well as gathered and put into still life arrangements. The result will be an imaginative visual overview of the Botanical Garden that can be used for a personal album, wall art or greeting cards.

Equipment Needed:

  1. DSLR, point and shoot or cell phone camera
  2. tripod (optional)
  3. laptop or tablet to review images in class
