"Using Backlighting for Added Photo Drama"
Mary Louise Ravese, Bella Vista Photography

  • Thursday, June 4, 2020 – 9:00 am11:00 am

Backlighting can create more drama in your garden photographs and have you looking at it from more unusual perspectives. We can use backlighting to emphasize the color and veining of leaves and petals. In this session, Mary Louise will explain what backlit opportunities to look for, and how to photograph these subjects. Then we'll practice this approach in the garden.

What to bring

Suitable for all types of cameras from DSLR and mirror-ess, to point-n-shoot and smartphone.
