Nature Photography In the Gardens with Nathaniel Smalley

June 26, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Monday-Wednesday, June 26-28, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Join award-winning photographer Nathaniel Smalley and gain new understanding in composing and capturing the beauty of nature. In this exceptional three-day photo session, tune your creative vision in a blend of both classroom and fieldwork. An in-depth presentation on camera settings will help you maximize the photographic opportunities we’ll encounter in the Gardens, where we’ll work on capturing images of plants and flowers in both landscapes and more intimate scenes. There will be time to process your images in Lightroom or Photoshop, developing them to their full potential.

Designed for photographers of all skill levels, participants should have a sturdy tripod, a camera with a manual mode setting, and a basic understanding of the functions of their camera’s ISO, aperture, shutter speed, light meter, and histogram.*
* Please note: This is not an introductory course on how to use your camera for the first time. Nathaniel offers private classes and, if needed, can be contacted via his website to prepare for this workshop.
