with Harry Wirtz

Make sharp, well-lit photographs of plants, flowers, and small artifacts on-site for
publication or printing. See a demonstration of photography of a small floral
subject (outdoors if weather permits). Control the quality of light from an
affordable compact strobe with a soft box, user-made reflectors, and other simple
accessories. Enhance the image using Affinity Photo (applicable to Photoshop).
Beginners are welcome, but intermediate- and advanced-level photographers
with high end digital single lens reflex or mirrorless cameras will probably benefit
most from this two-part course.

Part 1: Thursday, July 23, 12:30 PM to 2 PM
Part 2: Friday, July 24, 12:30 PM to 2 PM

$45 members/$50 non-members
