Abstract Nature Photography

Create beautiful abstract images with nature and glass as your muse. Learn techniques and use simple tools to stir your imagination, practice the art of seeing, and compose expressive abstract photographs.

Enjoy special access to the beloved Glass Pumpkin Patch during the field session, and apply your learning to the colorful blown-glass sculptures created by local and national glass artists. Compare and contrast these human takes on pumpkins with the varied display of natural pumpkins near the Visitor Center for a dual exploration of this symbol of autumn.
