Garden Photography FUNdamentals

Presented by Bob Cox

Guadalupe County Master Gardener

For example, one topic Cox will discuss is the importance of getting “stable” images. “Soft” or out of focus images might work well if enlargements are not going to be made, but any increase in image size also magnifies any error in sharpness. Examples will be used to illustrate subject matter.

 Free. Everyone is welcome.
