This workshop is for beginners and those looking to improve their flower and garden photography skills. We will meet just before sunrise at Dow's Lake Pavilion. We will sit by the pavilion outside where it's lit up for the instruction part.
A DSLR or a camera with manual settings and a tripod are essential to getting your money's worth in this workshop.
We will meetup at 4:30 pm in front of the Dow's Lake Pavilion.
For one half hour you will receive instruction in the basic fundamentals of photography as it relates to flowers, gardens, and the creatures which likely will be found around them like birds and butterflies. I will talk about using light creatively, using basic flash\fill flash, and getting your manual settings right. I will be available to help you set-up your camera and to answer any questions you may have over the course of the morning, as well as to suggest any photo opportunities I see. After the instruction time, we will start exploring Commissioner's Park and shooting the tulips right away.
This workshop will accept a maximum of five people.
Cost is $20 per person, payable upon arrival.
If it rains the workshop will be rescheduled for the next morning.
Bring comfortable clothing, wear sunblock (On the back of your neck especially), bring some water, and possibly something like a towel to keep your knees and bottom comfy as this type of shooting requires kneeling down or sitting on the grass a lot.
Please have a basic understanding of your camera's buttons, menu's, and functions.
