Nature is filled with amazing textures, patterns and rhythms. In this three-part intensive, you will expand your botanical understanding of why these patterns occur and revel in finding them throughout the change of seasons in the breathtaking Arboretum collections. In the first session, you will learn how to best capture the detailed “brush strokes” made within nature using your digital camera. You’ll spend your time learning more about what your camera and lenses can do and then going out to shoot. In the second session, invest a little more time in these skills and then start to delve into editing your shots. In the final session, focus on photo editing, cataloging, and output for printing of your images. You will need your DSLR camera and lenses you use, a laptop for the second and third sessions, and computer software downloaded onto your laptop (Lightroom or Photoshop, but Lightroom will be emphasized).
You’ll leave the final session confident in your increased skills to see images in nature that will yield breathtaking final results suitable for printing, framing, and even gift-giving. Required materials: personal laptop (PC or Mac) and digital camera to each session. 3 sessions.
