  • This event has passed.

Dramatic photos of wildlife seen in the garden are a joy to behold and an inspiration to all. Through lecture and onsite practice, professional photographer David Greaves presents insights on observing nature, the basics of using natural light to its best advantage, composing the shot, and other techniques for getting great images to share with family and friends. Students should bring a smartphone or other camera they are comfortable using to practice the techniques learned. If you have a tripod and are interested in learning how to better utilize it, bring it along. Please dress for the weather. (Class size is limited.)
