Photographing Bonsai: A Class with Stephen Voss
Learn bonsai photography from a master. World-renowned photographer, Stephen Voss, will lead a series of photography classes through the seasons. The class will guide students to look deeply at the bonsai trees in the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, located at the National Arboretum, and create their own portfolio of images that express what they see. Through targeted visual exercises and individual instruction, each participant will learn to reappraise the trees, and in turn, sharpen their visual acuity to make better photographs in any situation. By the end of the class, each student will come away with a unique set of images and some new skills to use the next time they pick up a camera. Students may register for full series or individual classes. Curriculum is not serial.
Participants can register for the class to include a signed copy of Stephen Voss's critically-acclaimed In Training: A Bonsai Photo Book. For those that register for all three classes, a signed copy is included with registration.
