Workshop: Garden Photography Basics
10:00 am – 3:00 pm
State Botanical Garden of Georgia
Visitor Center, classroom 2
$50 (Pre-registration required)
This hands-on workshop helps participants enhance their photography skills for flower and landscape portraits. In the morning session, participants will review choosing and using appropriate camera equipment, whether they’re working with a DSLR, point and shoot, or their phone. Next, instructors will cover composition, isolating the subject, working with light, and shooting landscapes, flower portraits, and close-ups. The morning will conclude with a photography exercise in the garden (weather permitting) or the conservatory. After lunch (not included; Café Botanica or brown bag), there will be a review of student photos from the morning exercise and an overview on using free software tools to enhance, edit, and share photos.
