On Saturday, August 12 from 9 – 2, take your garden photography from good to great by capturing Tower Hill Botanic Garden at its most beautiful. This course is ideal for Photographers with some knowledge of manual camera settings who want to take their abilities to the next level. Join Steve McGrath as he reveals his tips and techniques for taking quality close up as well as Landscape Photography in the gardens. We will discuss how to use wide-angle, normal and telephoto lenses most effectively in the garden to strengthen your composition for maximum impact. Learn to sharpen your awareness of light on the landscape and use creative white balance and ISO for expanding your images. We will view our images after an extensive day in the gardens. Bring a camera with macro capabilities, a sturdy tripod if you have one,and a large memory card.
