Learn It -- Shoot It -- Show It at Sacred Heart Garden Festival

If photographing flowers, butterflies, and gardenscapes is your passion, you’ll want to join us for the next learning weekend, sponsored by the Augusta Photo Festival and Sacred Heart Cultural Center. And featuring David Foster, the award-wining fine art nature photographer based in Atlanta who presented an exhibition of his artwork during the 2016 Augusta Photo Festival.

The weekend will start with a workshop presented by David from 9:30 to 11:30 on Saturday, April 22, in the Cotton Room at Enterprise Mill. David will provide tips and techniques for getting the most out of photographing the beautiful gardens featured in this year’s Garden Festival. He will also be on hand at one of the gardens to provide more tips.

After the workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to visit three gardens between noon and 5:00.

On Sunday, at 12 noon, David will join other APF staff members for a mini-critique session of photos taken on Saturday. Each participant will be asked to share photos from the previous day’s garden visits. The mini-critique will be held at the Augusta Canal Discovery Center theater. After the mini-critique, participants will be able to visit the final two gardens and apply more of the tips learned during the critique.

Included in the cost of this weekend event is admission to the other events at the Sacred Heart Cultural Center that are part of the Garden Festival.
