Discovering the Beauty of Floral Photography, February 26-27

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

This digital photography weekend workshop at Bok Tower Gardens, Lake Wales, Florida will explore the formal and natural gardens at this national historic landmark. At this time, we’ll have a chance to find beautiful examples of camellias and other spring blooms and we’ll learn creative ways to portray them with our digital cameras. Our group will have access to the grounds starting at sunrise to capture the early light and again in the late afternoon until sunset. In between, we’ll have classroom time for instruction on the finer points of digital photography, including after-capture techniques, as well as time to review your images and suggest ways to improve them.

Focus on Flowers: A Digital Close-up Photography Workshop, April 9-10

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

This workshop at The United States Botanic Garden in Washington, DC will concentrate on developing your skill in photographing close-ups of flowers using our digital cameras. We will have access to the conservatory and formal gardens before this showcase botanic garden opens to the public each morning. Not only will we be able to get the best light but we also have permission to use our tripods. Since this is also cherry blossom time in Washington DC, we will take time to photograph these delicate flowering trees at some point during this workshop. For those who are interested, this workshop will be offered as part of the Corcoran Certificate in Botanical Art and Design. Check back here for the links to the workshop and the certificate program when they become available.
