Contemplative Photography

A monthly four-part Contemplative Photography Workshop series. 

Each month has a different theme.

A photographer, naturalist, and educator living in Oakland, California, Becky Jaffe teaches Art of Seeing courses for advanced fine art photographers. Using in-camera techniques that stretch the photographic medium to create painterly effects, she fuses an artist’s sensibility with a biologist’s curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world. Becky has been a UC Botanical Garden docent for 10 years.
