About this course:

Botanical photography can capture an often irreplaceable (or unreproducible) moment in nature. Being aware of natural processes in your garden, home or community allows you access to memorialize nature’s wonders and celebrate these encounters. It requires patience, passion, and experimentation. As a self-proclaimed plant lover and amateur phone photographer, Stephanie will share her years of experience taking photos with her phone and discuss the simple tools she uses.
