$295 price includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday & Sunday

Special permission to enter the garden at sunrise, you ask? Yes please! Allen will lead at two-day intensive course on how to capture the essence of a garden that is ephemeral and enticing. Through field sessions out in the garden at peak times, as well as through one on one consultations and informative review sessions indoors - participants will gain in-depth instruction on the technical and aesthetic aspects of successful garden photography.

This workshop will instruct how to make the most of the creative potential of digital photography, specifically with images of flowers. You will learn how to master your digital camera so you can consistently get the exact color, mood, composition and sharpness you envision in your images. In critique sessions, you will fine-tune your images and learn from the unique perspective of other participants. Additionally, Allen will use these sessions to introduce you to an array of amazing but simple after-capture techniques that will not only improve your images, but also truly transform them.
