Workshop | July 9 | 1-4 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
When we observe Nature through the lens of ecology, we see the exquisite interconnectedness of all life. In this contemplative photography workshop, we will devote our attention to connectedness and interconnectedness, using the camera as a tool for meditation and the garden as a muse.
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 artists sensibility with a biologists curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world. Becky has been a UCBG Docent for the past 10 years.
