Landscape & Nature Photography Workshop
August 6 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Saturday, repeating until August 6, 2022
Turn your photos from Blah to Ahhh! Give them the impact and drama they deserve. Learn how to use light, color, and creative composition to make photos really stand out. In the Digital Darkroom, gain an overview of today’s simple, yet elegant software tools.
This 2-part workshop will be led by award-winning photographer, Jerry Ginsberg.
Class 1 – Principles and Concepts
Begins with a slideshow demonstration that illustrates the principles and concepts of creative composition, followed by a discussion of all the latest trends. The group will then go into the Garden to make photos. Participants should bring a digital or film camera, lenses, tripod, and any close-up devices. Knee pads or a kneeling pad might also be a good idea.
Class 2 – Image Composition
Participants should bring the photos and image files made during Class 1, as well as a note pad. We will use creative composition to make your photos really POP! Participants should bring a laptop with Adobe Photoshop installed; the free trial version is OK and can be downloaded from Adobe.com.

$65 members; $80 for nonmembers (includes full Garden admission)
