Digital Photo Live In-the-Field Workshop @ Atlanta Botanical Garden
Your workshop falls on the iconic 4th of July holiday, so your lesson will include tips and techniques accordingly. Since tonight you might be attending a July 4th fireworks display shortly after your workshop, your instructor will be giving tips on capturing fireworks displays in a compelling manner, whether long exposure, shutter speed priority and other techniques!
In 1973, Atlantans proposed a botanical garden. Since then, the garden has flourished into an oasis just outside of Atlanta, a place for city-dwellers to find repose in natural surroundings.
The gardens include a myriad of flowering plants, all incredibly and intricately detailed. Learn to isolate a blossom, using depth of field to make sure it is in clear focus.
The gardens also contain a variety of fauna, along with the flora. Take a photo of a green frog blending in on a lilypad, or one of the more exotic amphibians in the Fuqua Conservatory. If you are lucky, you could also spot one of the Red-Tailed Hawks who make the gardens their home.
There is also a wide array of sculptures and fountains throughout the gardens. They change as different artists are featured throughout the year, so you never know what new and exciting installation you will encounter.
Water always makes for dynamic photographs. Learn to slow your shutter speed for water that looks velvety-smooth. Or use a fast shutter speed for a crisp image of water droplets mid-air.
Natural light varies much more than artificial. It can be challenging to shoot in the dappled shade of trees, but also very rewarding when the golden light hits just right.
Meet your instructor just by the waterfall/sign which is right outside the ticket booths a distance of about 100 feet.
Each Composition in the Field class begins with a talk with one of our experienced instructors, and then you and your fellow students take a stroll through one of a variety of photogenic locales (in any of the 20+ cities the DPA encapsulates). There is street photography, magnificent interiors, farmers markets, zoos, landscapes, and more, photos of which are included within. These photos are a mix of student and instructor images in many different venues and cities across the United States and Canada.
You will have fun in the three hour session, learn to shoot strategically, get more interesting photos of the event, and walk away with a foundation to improve your photographs in the future, whether you’re traveling, or at a birthday party and everywhere in between.
