About the workshop
Join photographer and educator Jackie Kramer and Hunt’s Photo Education’s Emily Hojnowski in this multi-session workshop, starting in-the-field at Heritage Gardens in Sandwich, MA, then continuing the following week to a post-processing description and concluding two weeks later with an image review, both featuring Jackie!

Part 1- Friday May 26th, 10am-1pm OR 2-5pm • Garden Macro In-the-Field at Heritage Gardens, Sandwich
Shoot in the Garden: Meet at Heritage Gardens at 10am and join Jackie in the garden and as she demonstrates how and why she selects her subjects to focus on. Jackie will explain what she looks for in her subjects, such as light, form, relative distances, and interest. Jackie will discuss which lens she thinks is most appropriate and, on certain subjects, she will demonstrate the variations in effects achieved by using different optics. She shoots with everything from her 100mm macro to her 100-500mm telephoto zoom and an assortment of Lensbabies. You will shoot the early blooms as Jackie offers guidance and tips along the way. In addition to photographing flowers, you will make textures in the garden to be used in post-processing.

Part 2- Tuesday May 30th, 6-9pm EDT • Online!
Post-processing: Jackie will lead a 3-hour online editing session showing everything from basic edits in Lightroom to more advanced techniques in Photoshop. She will include images from the Heritage shoot to illustrate creative possibilities.

Part 3- Sunday June 11th, 6pm EDT • Online!
Image Reviews: After some time on your own for post-processing and to apply creative techniques to your images we will have a final session to provide feedback to you. Jackie will offer her thoughts on your images with an eye toward elements such as composition, exposure, lighting, impact, and editing. She will offer you ideas you may wish to take with you on your future shoots and/or tips to tweak or vary your post-processing.
