$49 for a Walking Tour and Introduction-to-Photography Class ($98 Value)

While navigating the garden, students learn the mechanical basics of cameras and lenses, the fundamentals of exposure, basic composition techniques, how to adjust depth of field, and how to react when a squirrel winks at your camera. Students should dress appropriately and apply sunscreen as needed for these walking workshops. Three-hour workshops typically meet at the Tea Pavilion at the Japanese Friendship Garden on select Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m., though customers should check the calendar for particular dates and locations. The next tour scheduled meets on September 8 at Tea Pavilion.
