Learn how to take stunning garden photographs

Ever wished you could capture the beauty of a flower on camera as well as it looks in person?  Want to improve your garden photography or just getting started?

Better Photography in the Garden

Saturday, July 24, 2010
Zilker Botanical Garden
2220 Barton Springs Rd, Austin TX 

This class will help you capture the beauty of nature with your camera.  Learn tips on capturing plants and insects in the garden to get the most impact.  Discussion will include how lighting, focal length and aperture interact in composing photographs and how to use your camera's programs (landscape, portrait, etc.) effectively.  After the presentation, we'll go out into the Botanical Garden to practice our new skills.  Participants must bring their own camera, and have an understanding of how to work it. All types of cameras are welcome.  

Prerequisite: study the owner's manual on your camera.  Bring your camera for some practical exercises.

This seminar is free and open to the public.  It is co-sponsored by the Docents of Zilker Botanical Garden and the Travis County Master Gardeners Association, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County.
