Course Description

A view of trees from afar lit by the sun.

Join an expert photographer for golden hour, that magical moment just before sunset when the soft light gives the Arboretum a special, warm glow. Working under the guidance of your instructor, learn how to use the settings on your camera and how to compose your shot to best capture the scene. Experiment with front-lighting, backlighting, rim lighting, and flare. Go home with new knowledge to practice and apply on your own.
