Focusing on DSLR Photography in the Garden



Berkshire Botanical Garden (5 West Stockbridge Road, Stockbridge, MA 1260)

Gardens and landscapes offer multiple fertile photographic opportunities for knowledgeable users of traditional camera systems. After an overview of basic systems and functions, this class will address a range of photographic techniques including close-up, depth of field, lighting, scenes, pre-sets, landscape and image composition. Following demonstrations by our highly experienced instructor and professional photographer Thad Kubis, participants will practice their new skills in specific situations in our garden. Thad will be roaming the garden to answer questions and provide continuing guidance. This hands-on session will conclude with a review and discussion of some of the day’s actual images. Participants will receive Thad’s guide to digital photography. All should bring their fully charged devices, traditional or DSLR cameras for the photo session.Use of tripods is optional but will be covered.
