Photography Workshop with Saxon Holt at the San Francisco Botanic Garden
It occurs to me that I never posted about this workshop, which was held at the end of June during the Garden Bloggers’ Fling. I won’t try to convey what Saxon Holt had to say, but Judy found it very helpful. I will say that Saxon was very gracious and entertaining as he shared his expertise.
There was some discussion of trying to see through a frame.
After the workshop, Judy and the other participants went wandering around the San Francisco Botanic Garden to try and apply what they had heard. It was close to noon at this point and the sun was very bright, which was challenging.
We only saw a small part of the garden. However, we did see some really magnificent trees, though I couldn’t tell you what they were.
There were a lot of impressive foliage plants, like these Gunnera.
And these Cycads.
There were a cute family of ducks in the pond.
There was a bed with red poppies that really stood out in the landscape, which tended to be mostly greens and softer colors.
