From the dawn of image-making, capturing gardens, plants and flowers has been one of the most enduring photographic themes. In this course, we'll explore historical and contemporary botanicals and examine how, as a subject, they can provide a viable stream of income. We'll distinguish and practice the various approaches from close-ups to wide-angle scenes, and how light and design are foundations to visually strengthen our results.
Assignments will range from tabletop set-ups to landscapes incorporating compositional layering using either artificial or natural light. You'll be encouraged to explore and incorporate your research and vision into your work.
A full course refund will only be provided if you withdraw from a course prior to the course start date. For courses with more than one class, a refund, less a minimum $15 administrative fee may be issued if you withdraw prior to the second class. Depending on your method of payment, a refund will be either mailed to you or credited to your credit card.
