Garden Photography Workshop with Wayne & Meghan Cahilly

|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every 1 day(s) that lasts 0 day(s) and 0 hour(s), the last of which will begin on May 22, 2016

Join New York Botanical Garden’s Wayne Cahilly and his daughter Meghan Cahilly for their popular  weekend long workshop on garden photography.

This workshop offers hands-on instruction and a delightful difference and balance in photography perspectives  provided by the two instructors.

We will focus on three major topics

1) Exposure Controls – the students will learn about the three essential controls on their cameras which determine how light is seen by the camera
2) Seeing as a Photographer – photo composition is fundamental to creating images that are more appealing than the ones you took last year 🙂
3) Seeing and Understanding Light – your camera is a box with buttons and software that admits and records light. To craft outstanding images, the photographer must be able to see and understand light as the camera will see it, and manipulate the buttons, dials and software to control and capture it well.

The photographer is the artist, light is your paint, and the camera is your brush and canvas — the most important element of photography is the 12 inches behind the camera!

Workshop to be a full day Saturday (10 am – 4 pm) and a half day Sunday (9 am – 1:30 pm). Students will need to bring their own digital camera. Lunch provided on Saturday session.

(Register at the door Saturday morning.)
