Focus on Flowers: Discover the Beauty of Flowers and Gardens: July 29-30

Chicago Botanic Garden

The Chicago Botanic Garden is unique for its variety of gardens — English, Japanese, prairie, etc. — an ideal setting for photographing a wide variety of flowers and other plants. We’ll have access to the gardens early in the morning before it opens to the public so we can focus on mastering macro-photography techniques with our digital cameras. This intensive two-day workshop is designed for all photographers who want to improve their images of floral close-ups and groupings. We will concentrate on creating images built around color, shape, line, texture and mood, making strong visual statements using these abstract elements of design. Then, in our review sessions, we will explore ways to improve and fine-tune our images working with today’s amazing but simple after-capture photo editing techniques, so bring your laptop.
