Tuesday, March 7, 2017 8:00 PM

Here is your chance to photograph Fairchild during that magic hour of sunset as it highlights the winter evening sky. This class affords you the opportunity to benefit from an expert’s instruction in photographing the Garden just as the moon is rising. A very sturdy tripod and a camera with interchangeable lenses or a point-and-shoot camera with close-up settings and user-adjustable settings are strongly recommended. This class is limited to 12 participants, 18 years and older. The class is not for beginners, therefore there will be no basic camera instruction given. It will involve a great deal of walking, so please wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Students should bring along insect repellant, a flashlight and water. Class takes place even if it rains.
