Take a day trip with like-minded photographers to the UCSC Arboretum. 

The UC Santa Cruz Arboretum & Botanic Garden’s rich and diverse collection contains representatives of more than 300 plant families of Mediterranean climates. The garden maintains collections of rare and threatened plants of unusual scientific interest. Particular specialties are the colorful, textural world conifers, primitive angiosperms, and bulb-forming plant families. Large collections of plants from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and California natives are displayed on the grounds.

Your instructor will help you sort out challenges of composition, lens choice, exposure, and camera handling. With the breathtaking subject matter that UCSC Arboretum offers, the focus of this class will be on macro shooting, depth-of-field control, HDR (high dynamic range) and the use of polarizing filters.

Wear comfortable shoes for hiking, a sun hat is advisable, and bring a polarizing filter.

Class meets in the parking area in front of the arboretum. We will proceed into the arboretum together no later than 3:15, or once all students have arrived - please arrive on time!
