Photographing Designs in Nature Workshop, at the Guelph Arboretum    Sat Apr 21, 2018, Guelph, ON

1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. - Nature is the most amazing artist… if we take the time to look closely, we discover complex designs and colour combinations, shifting shapes, or movement in the landscape. This class is perfect for the photographer looking for inspiration and fresh ideas…. We’ll look at new ways to photograph abstract patterns, and create impressionist effects. Through a short lecture, we’ll study compositional techniques and camera settings, then we’ll head outside for a field trip to practice. The class finishes with a (gentle!) critique of your photographs. Bring a tripod if possible, and dress for the weather….this is a “rain or shine” class, wet weather can work wonders on the landscape. Suitable for all skill levels with tips for both beginner and advanced photographers. Ages 16+, or younger if accompanied by an adult. Guest Instructor: Sylvia Galbraith ( Early Bird Fee: $55.00 if done on or before Thursday, April 12, 2018. Registrations after this date will cost $65.00. Note: If we don't have enough registrations by the early bird deadline the course may be cancelled. Maximum 18 participants.
