The spring landscape is the perfect setting for acquiring and honing photography skills. On Sat., May 10, learn how to get the best images from your camera, and how to enhance your images with Photoshop software, when Joshua Taylor Jr. leads Photo Capture and Enhancement at Adkins Arboretum.
This hands-on workshop is designed to increase both participants’ photographic skills and the joy of using their cameras. It covers basic shooting techniques for capturing spring splendor, as well as image processing principles such as cropping, compositing, content-aware fill and converting to black and white. The program is non-technical and visually informative, and includes both outdoor shooting with the instructor and classroom instruction.
Taylor has presented photography workshops at the Smithsonian National Orchid Show, the U.S. National Arboretum, the U.S. Botanic Garden, and for public gardens, preserves and horticultural societies across the region. In addition to teaching in the Smithsonian Studio Arts Program and at the Corcoran School of Art and Design, he exhibits his work regularly and speaks to camera and garden clubs.
The workshop runs from 8 a.m. to noon and is $45 for Arboretum members, $60 for non-members. Advance registration is required at adkinsarboretum.org or by calling 410.634.2847, ext. 0.
