#GWA2017 Education | Good Pictures in Bad Conditions (Mark Turner)
Good Pictures in Bad Conditions
Monday, August 7, 9:45AM - 10:45AM
Soft light, neatly manicured garden beds, a sense of mystery and discovery are all things we wish for when we photograph gardens. But all too often the sun’s too bright, it’s raining, the daffodils need deadheading, or there are weeds lurking about when we arrive — with a deadline breathing down our necks. Mark will entertain and enlighten you with stories of his experiences making some of those proverbial “silk purses” when conditions are less than perfect. He’ll show the results and share some favorite tools for working in almost any conditions.
