Photography in the Japanese Garden: The Zen of Bokeh
The term bokeh comes from the Japanese and refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur created in out-of-focus parts of a photograph. Join professional photographer and educator, Edgar Miller, as you learn to include this technique into your photographic repertoire, all amidst the composed beauty of the Japanese Garden. Emphasis will be placed on recognizing the elements that make a strong photograph, such as selective framing, focus, and exposure. You will take away connections with fellow-photographers and your own “zen of bokeh” to be used in all your images.
