Contemplating Gratitude: Photography Workshop

Workshop | August 6 | 1-4 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

In this contemplative photography workshop, we will renew our innate gratitude by relentlessly delighting in Nature’s grandeur. The garden and our cameras will conspire to hone our wonder and create expressive imagery grounded in gratitude.

Any and all equipment are invited, including DSLRs, mobile phones, point-and-shoot, polaroid, and pinhole cameras. We will emphasize the process of art making and the cultivation of awe over technical considerations. Open to beginning and experienced students.

A photographer, naturalist, and educator living in Oakland, California, Becky Jaffe teaches Art of Seeing courses for advanced fine art photographers. Using in-camera techniques that stretch the photographic medium to create painterly effects, she fuses an artist’s sensibility with a biologist’s curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world. Becky has been a UCBG docent for the past 10 years.

This workshop is part two in a four-part monthly series. The full series includes:
