Capture The Beauty of Spring at Beautiful Longwood Gardens
Spend the day at Longwood Gardens, photographing the beauty of spring!
Are you tired of the gray skies and dullness of winter? Itching to get out and capture the beauty of spring? Then we have a fantastic event for you! Come spend the day photographing the stunning beauty of spring flowers and landscapes with us at one of the top gardens not only in the country-but in the world! Longwood Gardens comes alive in spring in an incredible array of color! If you are a landscape or floral photographer, then this safari is for you!
Watch as spring color seemingly explodes to paint the landscape in vibrant hues. Tulips, daffodils, dogwoods, wisteria and more herald spring’s arrival indoors and out. Breathe in the fresh spring air and relish the beauty as we photograph in the Idea Garden and Flower Garden Walk, where more than 240,000 tulips burst into bloom!
This safari will focus on learning to see more creatively by composing gorgeous images of the grand landscape, as well as getting up close and personal with the amazing details before our eyes.
Among the many techniques discussed will be how to creatively compose images to create depth, bring out the character of the subject, learning to see and use light creatively, using fill flash and diffusers to control harsh light, the use of circular polarizers to deepen color saturation and more, how focal length affects subject and background rendition and more! You will not want to miss this one! Join us!
