Conceived distinctively for out-door nature photography, Barbara will lead a visualization journey into the gardens of the Coker Arboretum. The following week students will remotely share 20 of their favorite images for the final critique. Students will experiment with the technical aspects of photographing trees, including the use of specific lenses, perspective and distortion control, depth of focus, and exposure management. Students will explore the artistic characteristics of various tree species with attention to the design elements including tonality and contrast, textural attributes, compositional arrangement, ambient light and shadow values. During the critique session, these technical and artistic choices are addressed. Discussion may tend towards thematic concerns, symbolic representation, and the use of metaphor.Find out more »
