Learn how to get the best nature pictures from your camera or smartphone. Bayou Bend’s glorious gardens provide the setting for a photography workshop introducing digital photographers to the principles of lighting and composition.

Led by Houston Center for Photography instructor Laura Burlton, the workshop features a classroom-style presentation and supervised practice time in the gardens. Tickets include admission for two return visits to Bayou Bend’s gardens during 2020, so that you can try out your new skills (some restrictions apply).

Bayou Bend offers a wide range of beautiful backdrops throughout 14 acres: formal gardens, bayou woodlands, water features, statues, spectacular trees. Flowers blooming at this time of year often include alyssum, camellias, dogwoods, and pansies.
