For the first time in several years I am leading a workshop at San Francisco Botanical Garden.  Coming soon – Saturday, June 11.

Photo workshop Mon Oct 4 2010

The workshop, Garden Landscape Photography, will concentrate on seeing the landscape and how to use the camera as a tool for composition.  All workshop students will get a copy of my e-book Think Like A Camera in advance of the workshop to take full advantage of the 6 lessons covered in the book.

We will meet at 7:30 to get an early start, tour the gardens with the lessons in mind, and have a lengthy critique.  Do pre-register to get the book.  I will review the lessons before we set off in the garden, but there will not be a classroom lecture before we get to work.

Be sure to bring a tripod, a critical tool for composition, as I illustrated recently on a shoot in woodland garden, Tripod Point of View.

Before and After Slider

The San Francisco Botanic Gardens are looking great, but as anyone who knows the garden there are expansive views that can difficult to capture in a photograph. Landscape photography is fun when you have some composition tools to work with.

The workshop is 7:30 to 12:30 and is $130 or $110 for members. Join us June 11.
