Saturday & Sunday, June 30 and July 1, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm – Photographing Botanicals
Capture the magic and beauty of the garden and landscape at Berkshire Botanical Garden. Learn photographic techniques and tips to help create unique images. Exercises in composition, light, depth of field and exposure will give participants the skills and confidence to approach subjects with new and original points of view. Instructor Cassandra Sohn, the curator of Botanophilia, the current exhibition on display in the Center House at the Berkshire Botanical Garden will use the exhibition as inspiration for this workshop. Sohn will lead participants through discussions, demonstrations and focused assignments, to find new ways to explore flora and landscapes. All levels of ability are welcome. Bring your camera, either; SLR, digital, film, or point and shoot camera. This two day class will take place June 30 and July 1, from 1 – 6 each day, and costs $195 if you are a member of BBG, and $225 if you are a non-member.
