Create Impressionistic Images - Winterthur Gardens

Join instructor Lori Lankford for a spring day spent visiting Winterthur Gardens.  Explore this beautuful location with Lori and learn tips and techniques to creatively capture floral and garden images. 

Topics include: 

  • Students will learn to explore in-camera techniques to create impressionistic garden images 
  • We will explore the use of light to capture garden scenes in a magical way
  • Using the natural spaces we will explore capturing the larger garden scenes as well as close up spring flowers 

A DSLR or mirrorless camera, lenses in the range of 18-200 or 300mm will work well and a macro lens if you have one.  Close up filters or extension tubes are also good to have on hand if you have them but they are not required.  Tripods will not be needed.

Class fee does not include the entrance fee to Winterthur Gardens: $20 - Adult,  $18 - Senior (62).  Please purchase your ticket as soon as, or before, you register for the class to make sure they are still available.

Note - Participants should be familiar with their camera and be able to control the settings.
