Workshop – Photography for Beginners at Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Sunday, January 14, 2018 - 9:00am

Valley photographers MiMi, Jack, Tim, Mark and Kathy have photographed landscapes and people from Arizona to the Mediterranean, criss-crossing America, west to east and north to south exploring national parks, urban landscapes and subjects through portrait, close-up photography. The quintet of photographers volunteer a day here at the UA's Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior each month – sharing their camera skills and coaching beginners. The goal is to share a few basic camera lessons while photographing the gardens. 

These photo walks include time for participants to learn basic camera functions ranging from aperture and exposure to white balance. In addition, participants will be able to ask their specific questions answered in a supportive small groups, each with a friendly camera coach whose goal is to "put the fun in camera functions, and eliminate aspects of photography that can be intimidating for beginners."
