For flower portraits, the class will cover defining the subject, choosing a lens focal length, focusing, metering, isolating the subject, and lighting. For plants in the landscape, we will discuss how photographing in a larger setting differs from making plant portraits. Working through several examples, we will pay particular attention to how light affects the larger scene, and to composing the image to emphasize what you want to show the viewer. A portion of the class will be spent photographing in the Garden’s wildflower meadow (weather permitting) or the Conservatory.
