Spring is often subtle in its arrival. Discover the ideal camera and lens settings to capture those small hints of the changing season. Learn to recognize which perspectives will best highlight these small-scale buds and shoots. Macro or close-focusing lens quite helpful, but not required. This class will be taught online using Zoom, Dropbox, and email. Registered students will receive login instructions. Class limited to digital cameras only. The School’s CEUs=8 hours

Photographing Signs of Spring (SoS)

April/ May 2020

Chicago Botanic Garden

 Jack Carlson, Photography Instructor

Welcome to the Photographing Signs of Spring—on line.  Classes have been designed to find and photograph natural garden subtleties during the transition from (our seemingly endless up and down temperature changes) winter to spring. This year, assignments have been designed for ease of subject location and recognition.We’ll discuss topics such as composition (aka subject placement) light levels, color and texture. Then it’s up to you to put those concepts into reality and send them to me. I’ll put them in a Dropbox for all of us to enjoy and decide why we like each image. Note: Questions gladly received throughout the week, so don’t hesitate to email them whenever they arise.
