One of my first first lessons to students who take my garden photography workshops is about “seeing”. If you don’t stop to think what you are seeing, what it is that excites you about a garden, then you will end up with a photo that will be little more than literally, a snapshot of time. Let’s take this lesson to Chicago.
When you are in a fabulous garden you can start hyperventilating over beauty, not knowing where to start. It happens to everyone. It happened to me in the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millenium Park.
