Program – The Art and “Magic” of Lightbox Photography @ Luther Burbank Arts & Garden Center
Apr 25 @ 6:30 pm

Using a lightbox as a blank palette, Lucy Beck will show how she chooses and arranges flowers to make artistic arrangements. She will then demonstrate how to photograph these arrangements to show an illusion of translucency. Using Photoshop, she will process a group of images to create a final painterly-like picture.
Lucy will bring a variety of printed pictures.
