Photography Workshop

  • Wing Haven Education Building 260 Ridgewood Avenue Charlotte, NC 28209 (map)

This is the first of two sessions; the workshop takes place over two Saturdays:

  • Saturday, March 23rd, and

  • Saturday, March 30th

The Light Factory and Wing Haven are collaborating this spring to offer a unique Photography Workshop. Work with The Light Factory photography instructor Michael O'Neill to learn how to make more compelling plant and garden photographs while exploring the unique enclosed-brick gardens, ambling pathways and landscaped greens of historic Wing Haven. Discover easy exercises to help you break through creative blocks, to look at plants in new ways, and to develop your own photographic style. This creative workshop will help you to capture the personality of plants and the spirit of botanical landscape.

This workshop will help students to:

  • Work more creatively, playfully and experimentally

  • Compose more engaging and creative images

  •  Understand technical elements, such as lens choice and depth of field, in botanical photography

  • Understand the impact of lighting on plants and in gardens by using reflectors and diffusers

  • Think beyond the capture to image selection, post-processing and presentation options

Please bring your DSLR camera, a tripod if you have one, and any lenses, filters, etc with which you wish to experiment. This workshop is open to all ages and experience levels.

Limited to 18 students. Light refreshments will be served.
