In “Think Like a Camera“, Book 2 of the PhotoBotanic Garden Photography Workshop e-books, garden photographer Saxon Holt continues the workshop series. The camera is an artistic tool that frames a composition in two dimensions. Learn techniques of lines, shape, and focal points found in all good gardens to fill the frame with strong compositions.
“Whether you have a big megapixel SLR camera or just a smart phone, your pictures will improve as soon as you think about what the camera is seeing—versus what you are seeing. Use the camera frame to fill your photograph with only those elements that tell your story.”
The chapters are practical lessons developed from years of teaching workshops and critiquing student work. “We are all garden photographers and by taking better garden photographs we help gardeners understand what a successful garden looks like.”
