The Flow-tography method helps you take your photos from like to LOVE. You experience an immediate flash of recognition as your inner and outer life experience connect and you click the shutter. It all starts from an inner stance of stillness and results in an image that will be a joy forever. Join this field trip to discover how to compose your self before you compose the image.
A good photograph is knowing where to stand.” – Ansel Adams On this photo field trip to the Arnold Arboretum, you will learn how to see nature through the eyes of an artist. Create photos that capture the natural wonders of the Arnold Arboretum in your own unique way. The lilacs are in bloom! The Arboretum is always a fabulous destination, but with the lilacs in bloom it is really not to be missed. Part of Harvard University, the arboretum was designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted and opened in 1872. You can reach this destination on the MBTA Orange Line to Forest Hills.
3,000 roses are in full bloom at the Kelleher Rose Garden located right behind the Museum of Fine Arts. This secret garden is not to be missed when you visit Boston. Every color, shape, and scent will inspire you to create dynamic compositions. The Kelleher Rose Garden is one of the hidden gems of the Emerald Necklace string of public parks in Boston. If you have never been, this is your chance, and if you have been many times before, join us to see the familiar beauty in a fresh way. We will do many visual exercises to learn how to show these flowers in their best light.
Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. Georgia O'Keeffe
Blossoms of Boston are among the most popular subjects for photographers. I imagine you have already taken hundreds of GOOD flower photos. We love their colors, shapes, textures and energy. This workshop will focus primarily on blossoms since this is the weekend they are here and so soon they will be gone.
