Abstract Macro Workshop - Bubbles and Reflections - 2/11/2017
The art of macro photography opens our eyes to the beauty in something ordinary. Creating pleasing photographs from patterned paper under containers of oil and water, or bits of color reflected in a shiny, textured surface is a matter of patient , experimentation and creativity. This is the perfect project for cold winter days when shooting outside is not an option.
Join us on Saturday, February 11th at 2:30 for GCC's Abstract Workshop. We will meet in Arcadia rooms A&B at Asbury. As we get closer to the actual workshop date we will provide directions to the Arcadia rooms. Click this for details of what to bring and what to do before the workshop.
