Landscape Construction and Installation Seminars
LG032: Garden Photography
This full-day seminar will help landscapers and designers capture images they will be proud to share. A great picture tells not only the story of your project, but also why your work deserves recognition. Good images are essential for your portfolio, website or to submit to the L.O. Awards of Excellence Program.
What makes a great image? We will review aperture, shutter speeds, ISO, composition skills and making the most of natural light. We will also touch on handy apps and software for editing your images to give them a professional finish. Illustrated with beautiful images and packed with practical tips, this session will teach you how to capture stronger images.
Note: This seminar is geared for photographers with a working knowledge of their camera. Weather permitting time will be spent outside practicing your new skills, suitable footwear is recommended. Participants will need a digital camera, charged batteries and a blank memory card. A tripod would be helpful.
