2:00 pm: Rachel Cobb, “In My Garden” Photography
If you’re a California Garden reader, you will no doubt have delighted in the beautiful photographs and covers that grace every issue. They are the work of our talented photographer, Rachel Cobb—and this October, we are proud to introduce her to our members and friends as she discusses ways to enhance our own garden photography skills.
Rachel will follow her talk by taking us on a short walk around the lily pond and Botanical Building to give some practical advice on improving garden photography, even with the most basic camera or cell phone.
Rachel, who lives in New Jersey, studied art at the New England School of Art and Design, Ridgewood School of Art and Design, and the Annex in New York City, where she worked as a freelance graphic designer for more than 20 years. She is a print and website designer for several garden-based publications and organizations, including The American Ivy Society, the Holly Society of America, San Diego Botanic Garden, San Diego Horticultural Society and, of course, San Diego Floral Association.
She lives by the credo of photographer Dorothea Lange:
“You put your camera around your neck along with putting on your shoes, and there it is: an appendage of the body that shares your life with you. The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
Rachel feels fortunate to be able to live her life documenting her love of nature’s simplicity and magnificence, stating: “I have found my niche, and am so lucky to share my life’s passion with so many wonderful people.”
Please join us for a wonderfully inspiring and practical learning experience.
