The Winter Workshop at the Chicago Botanic Garden is go! It begins on Sunday, January 12, and runs for 3 Sundays from 1 – 4 pm. Call 847.835.8261 to register for it.
I decided to get some images for a new powerpoint we will have in the Winter Workshop, so brought my camera to the CBG on Monday (12.9) for a few snaps.
While the tripod performed without problems, my fingers were quite unhappy since they were exposed to the elements when I folded back the mitten tops.
The 2 pm light was good, but 1 hour later (at least) probably would have added more warmth to the scenes. Since timing is the best way to control natural light, don’t leave home too early for afternoon shots. Shadows and angles create interest, and I didn’t get enough of either. The thought of returning to get more usable images is chilling. Question: Why are benches such a magnet for photographers?
Additional Note: look for naturally occurring frames while trying to warm your fingers.
