Design and Space

Think Like a Gardener

Book 1
PhotoBotanic Press
Free sample

Every garden has a theme, whether accidental or purposeful, well-maintained or messy. The garden fits into its surroundings, and that fit is the design — how it occupies the space it lives in. Design is a big part of the story of any good garden photograph.

Design and Space is the first lesson in the THINK LIKE A GARDENER series: a collection of exercises designed to extend the photographer's perception of garden design to finding themes and telling stories.  The THINK LIKE A GARDENER series is part three of the 4-part PhotoBotanic Garden Photography Workshop. There are six easy to follow lessons in each series.
