Garden photography with Philip Smith

4th May 2019 10am-4pm

The workshops welcome photographers of all levels and no specific expertise or previous experience is expected. The aim is to provide you with a set of skills and techniques that you can use to improve your photography of plants and gardens no matter what type of equipment you use. The workshops are about inspiring you to move out of your comfort zone to take great pictures. But it is not deadly serious nor is it a course about the latest technology. In a friendly, open environment, we aim to inspire you to get more pleasure and fun from your photography for years to come.
What to bring: your normal camera setup, along with any bits you perhaps rarely use, including a tripod. Fully charge your batteries and bring your camera’s manual if you are struggling with its controls. Dress appropriately for the outdoors and bring gardening kneelers if you have them.
