Longwood Gardens Macropalooza

July 28th 2018 8:45AM-11:30AM

Join Zach Heaton ( for another class at Longwood gardens where we will be exploring the depths of Macro photography! I will be teaching you the basics on how to capture the beauty of Longwood! We will be covering a wide range of techniques and quick tips to help create and improve the way you see your subject. The gardens are a perfect location for just that! Its a gorgeous area to photograph and learn some new moves that will help shape and improve your images. My goal is for you to have the knowledge to go forward and be able to use that information in the future to recreate these images on your own. I want you to be proud of the compositions you create. Longwood Gardens is a place to see dazzling displays that elevate the art of horticulture. From a towering 12-foot-tall archway made of Phalaenopsis orchids, to giant orbs hanging from above, to the spectacular orchid curtain and more than 200 Vanda hanging in our Silver Garden, beauty awaits at every turn. Sign up today and let’s get going!
