Seeing Well: A photography workshop with Jan Armor
This Program Has Been Postponed. New Date TBDSeptember 21, 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Rain date: September 22
A good picture is one you haven’t seen before. (When you consider that 3,000 pictures are uploaded on Facebook every second, this can be quite a difficult task nowadays.) However, a good picture can also show something in a way no one has seen before, taken from a unique point of view, yours. This workshop is about training your eye to see well and deeply, and to use your heart and your head as well as your eyes to make pictures that can speak to others.
There are many facets to creating great pictures, including having the right light, employing imaginative composition, and using an origin approach. That is what our workshop is about—teaching techniques for making pictures that end up with something special within the frame, not only interesting, but unique and evocative.
Join like-minded photographers for this five-hour hands-on event. Our studio will be the soft evening light in Blithewold’s lovely gardens.

A Sustainable Rose Garden
(Aug 06, '15)
I freely admit that when we moved the Pollinator Garden this spring to its new location at the top of the meadow west of the vegetable garden I didn’t have high hopes for it to be a thing of beauty this year. For a couple of reasons. One, the intended location was full of nutsedge that […]

Lily has to be one of the most overused descriptors in horticulture. Go figure, given how aptly it defines so many flowers: the word itself has a trumpeting flare and and if I use my imagination, a sweet fragrance too… Spring is plenty-lily-ful with trout lily, lily of the valley, checkered lilies, and lily-flowering tulips doing their thing, but starting […]
North Garden inventory
(Jul 17, '15)
I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
