Garden Photography Class

I know some of my readers have taken or thought about taking David Goldberg's Garden Photography Class at UC Berkeley Extension. You'll be glad to know that he is planning a class for spring 2011. A long way off, but you know how these things go. It will be a field/classroom alternation--a class in a garden that he will select, then a classroom session to review the images. (His photography career has given him access to many fine gardens.) If you have taken his previous classes, this one will be an enrichment and provide more experience. If you haven't, you can get started with this one. It can be taken with a film or digital SLR camera that has manual settings. The class will cover the skills needed to create great closeups as well as strong images of larger garden areas. You can see examples of his photographs on his website at or ask him questions about the class at
