Reflective, translucent glass surfaces and large, textured, shiny surfaces bring special challenges to the photographer. Inspired by Chihuly in the Garden, you will learn techniques to photograph these colorful sculptures. Discussions will include pre-visualizing light and how to find the optimum hour of existing light to create effects, as well as the use of reflectors, filters, artificial light sources (including display lights, strobes and flashlights), composition and depth of field. For DSLR camera owners only. Students should bring a tripod, a polarizing filter, a long zoom lens, a small flashlight, a laptop with Adobe® Photoshop® or comparable software, and a card reader. Last chance to take this class during this exhibition!

  • Class enrollment limit: 10
