I will be at The Coastal Maine Botanical Garden to offer a Friday evening lecture on The Power of Natural Light followed on Saturday and Sunday by a two-day workshop on Mastering the Art of Flower and Garden Photography. The lecture presentation will explore the many qualities of light that photographers encounter and how to make the most of every kind of light. The intensive two-day workshop will take advantage of the amazing photographic opportunities at The Coastal Maine Botanical Garden. We will enhance our photographic skills by exploring the stunning ornamental gardens plus some of the miles of trails that allow us to experience Maine’s exceptional natural beauty, complete with waterfalls, pristine woodlands and incomparable coastal vistas. We will also have access to quaint waterfront towns and classic stonework that are quintessentially Maine. Through lectures, field sessions and review sessions, you will receive in-depth instruction on making the best use of natural light throughout the day; mastering floral close-ups; portraying flowers in their garden or natural setting; and understanding the technical potential of digital cameras and after- capture techniques for achieving creative outcomes.
