Focus on Longwood’s abundant water features in this hands-on digital photography workshop. With the use of a tripod and digital SLR camera, come learn the secrets of capturing the intricate details of water. You will have the rare opportunity for one hour to get into the world famous waterlily pools for a frog’s eye view of this spectacular display. A morning lecture on composition and water shooting techniques will be followed by photographing in the garden. Class time is devoted to photography, so we’ll use the online classroom for discussions and critiques after your day at Longwood Gardens. 

Bring your own digital camera capable of accepting multiple lenses, charged batteries, a tripod, and a laptop. A circular polarizer can also come in handy. This class is physically challenging and should only be taken by students who can readily walk, climb, and stoop.

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