Digital Garden Photography: Creating the Image
Robert E. Lyons
Professor Emeritus, University of Delaware

This interactive workshop is all about using your eyes, mind, and camera to capture either extended or fleeting moments in your personal landscapes. They may be your gardens, vignettes from your travels, and/or simple records of favorite plants. This workshop is example-driven and provides understandable information to create aesthetically pleasing and pragmatic images . . . suitable for framing, teaching, selling a job proposal, or all three. While equipment details and camera mechanics will be discussed, that discussion will not dominate the presentation; instead, the impact and exploitation of prevailing light, elements of photographic composition, and developing a personal style will be demonstrated, emphasized, and encouraged. This workshop is primarily relevant for early stage photographers (beginners/advanced beginners). The format includes one hour in the classroom, approximately one hour of shooting on grounds, and a final hour of class review of selected images. Participants should be very familiar with the operation of their own camera, and both compact and DSLR types are welcome. Participants are also encouraged to bring their personal devices (laptop, iPad, etc.) if they have one, to facilitate image downloading, Digital Garden Photography: Seeing, Composing, and Creating the Image

Leaf Casting in Concrete
Lucy Dinsmore
Horticulturist, Morris Arboretum
Nicky Beadle
Volunteer and former gardener at Brookside Gardens

A piece of sculpture adds a whimsical accent to any garden. Learn how to turn a live leaf into stone and add year-round interest to that perfect nook in your garden during this 2-hour workshop. The concrete leaves make great bird baths, stepping stones, or even wall art. Bring your favorite leaf - perhaps a hosta, rhubarb, or magnolia. If you don't have access to leaves, we will have several available. Fee includes all materials to make one large or two small leaf sculptures. Dress for getting messy. We will meet at Bloomfield Farm. Look for the paved road across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Park in the lot and follow the signs to the Horticulture Center.
