Seminar on Better Rose Photography:  May 18, Bon Air Park, Arlington

While my professional blog is normally dedicated to teaching the public how to look good in pictures, next week I'll be teaching the public how to make flowers, specifically roses, look good in pictures.  I have a bit of a passion for growing and photographing roses as my husband and friends will tell you.  So I'm sharing it with anyone who has time and interest to attend the seminar May 18.  Bring your tripod!  Here is the press release:

Former White House photographer Tracey Attlee and Arlington Rose Foundation President Pam Powers are teaming up to teach a seminar to novice photographers on how to photograph roses in the garden.  The seminar will start at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, May 18, 2013, at Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden, 850 North Lexington Street, Arlington, VA 22205.

Interested photographers should bring their camera and tripod.  After the demonstration and follow up questions we will help you photograph your favorite rose varieties in this garden of over 2000 plants, including Hybrid Tea, Grandiflora, Floribunda and miniature roses.

Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden is one of the largest AARS (All American Rose Selection) gardens on the East Coast.  Arlington Rose Foundation has a long history with this beautiful garden maintained by Arlington County and open to the public.  For further information please contact Pam Powers at 703-371-9351 or
