Composition Workshop - Atlanta Botanical Gardens

  • May 12, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

In 1973, Atlantans proposed a botanical garden. Since then, the garden has flourished into an oasis just outside of Atlanta, a place for city-dwellers to find repose in natural surroundings. The gardens include a myriad of flowering plants, all incredibly and intricately detailed. Learn to isolate a blossom, using depth of field to make sure it is in clear focus. The gardens also contain a variety of fauna, along with the flora. Take a photo of a green frog blending in on a lily-pad, or one of the more exotic amphibians in the Fuqua Conservatory. If you are lucky, you could also spot one of the Red-Tailed Hawks who make the gardens their home.

Join me, Ken Ross, for a fun and informative workshop overflowing with tips, techniques and composition strategies in this one-of-a-kind Atlanta treasure. This class is being taught in cooperation with the Digital Photo Academy (DPA) so you must register (and pay) via their site in order to attend.

This 3hr workshop will be for all skill levels as I'll be covering everything you need to create great images! We'll look at composition (of course) and photography fundamentals like Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, metering modes, depth-of-field control, and more! Tripods are welcome but not required.

Note: The Atlanta Botanical Gardens charges an $18.95 entrance fee and [approx.] $5 for parking (depending on how long you stay after class). You will be responsible for these fees - they are not included in the workshop fee.

Get all the details here!

You must register through the DPA site in order to attend this event. Please don't RSVP here until you've signed up on DPA.

F2 members get 50% off the Digital Photo Academy price - just tell them you're an F2 Photo School member!

    Had an outstanding class at the Botanical Gardens today! Weather was awesome and the crowds didn't really settle in until after noon.
