MONOCHROME IN THE WINTER GARDEN
 

Barbara will guide you to look for the types of imagery that can be

successfully rendered in monochrome for more impact. Instead of

color, you will seek out texture, lighting , form and isolation of your

subject. Whether you like to photograph closeups or landscapes, you

will look for the best light, contrast and composition to make those black

and white images pop!  The class includes a critique from the day’s shoot.

FROM NATIVE PLANTS TO NURSERY POTS:

Creating images from the native garden

               in contrast to the tropical botanical

Wandering among flowers and plants can be a peaceful and soothing

experience: photographing them can allow you to envision the possibilities

of creating art from their documentation.  During this three day workshop,

you will have an opportunity to explore and create unique images in a private

native garden among pollinators and a shade nursery where rich colors thrive. 

Barbara will guide you through various techniques of capturing the beauty

of flowers, both closeup and from afar. 

By composing with light, texture, movement, staging and color

you could form a series of botanical images to show or share.

CREATING YOUR UNIQUE PASTEL ENHANCED IMAGES


Whether you have images from the garden or travel photos, you will

learn how to create one of a kind art pieces in this one day workshop.

Barbara will show you how to change  your image to black and white

in order to apply pastels for that turn of a century look.  You will learn

the techniques of blending while practicing on pre printed photos,

then take this information to work on your own images. 

No art experience is necessary -just the desire to learn and have fun

in the process.  You may find that coloring your own images is as relaxing

as a walk in the garden.
