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.
