Join us in a thoughtful observation of a garden at rest. With the leaves now gone and shadows growing longer, winter is an ideal time to see the garden designer’s vision. The subtle, strong “bones” of the garden are more evident and the intricate design structures of the trees and shrubs are now uncovered. The show pieces of the gardens become the lines, textures, and colors of stone, bark, iron, and glass. Add just a dusting of snow, and views become a study in high contrast and simple forms. Start your day with a quick classroom discussion of camera settings and techniques. Before you venture outdoors, the instructor will share a few images of possible locations and techniques to try during your photo walk. When you return to the classroom, share and critique your favorite shots of the day.

Participants must bring their own digital photographic equipment and fully charged batteries. Participants should have a working knowledge of their camera. Some activities are not applicable to point-and-shoot cameras. A tripod is optional but highly recommended. Dress for the weather.

Photos taken during photography classes at Longwood may not be sold for commercial uses.
