It’s almost time to grab your closest focusing lens and join us on April 27th (for 4 Saturdays) as we find and photograph all the small signs of new growth. One of the most difficult things to do at this time of year is to dial down your thinking from large, hi-def, super-saturated colors. Subtle colors and tiny shoots are the subjects now, which s-l-o-w-s the entire image capture process and requires some type of close-focusing lens. If you don’t have a really low tripod, get a bean bag to support your camera and keep it out of the dirt. Spring and autumn are seasons of change which makes it a wonderful time to own a camera. On-line registration for this class at chicagobotanic.org opens on Wednesday, February 13. FYI, the class fills quickly because it’s both fun and challenging to scale down your thinking. Why not join us.
A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.
The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.
Each photograph tells a story.
