The Art of Photographing Flowers and Gardens
David's talk will focus on the "basics" of good photography in general and the art of photographing flowers in particular. Photography is all about capturing light, David will discuss the three variables of capturing light plus composition and shooting modes.
Although not a professional photographer, David's works have been shown in several local exhibitions. A number of his photos have been used for Filoli postcards and door magnets and will be included in the upcoming book on the history of Filoli. He heads the Filoli Photographers which are a part of the Art Committee. Visit his web site, DavdSheetzPhotography.com, to see some of his work.
