Improve your photography skills by capturing spring in bloom! With online and field sessions, this workshop will explore macro photography, a technique that allows the photographer to get close to the subject and make it appear as large or larger than life size. Macro photography invites the photographer to slow down, look more closely at the subject, and create images that show subjects in novel ways that the casual viewer might overlook.
You will have plenty of time to practice under the guidance of your instructor during the field session, where you will explore the Fragrance Garden and Joy Path, catching your subjects in the beautiful morning light. The class will focus on flowering trees and plants according to what’s in bloom. Enjoy this chance to slow down and learn to see nature with a photographer’s eye.
Experience using the manual settings on your camera is required.
COVID-19 Precautions: Program participants must abide by the Arboretum’s safety guidelines.
