FROM THE SIMPLE TO THE SOPHISTICATED

THE SAVILL GARDEN is Britain's finest ornamental garden. It's a garden for all seasons and a place of beauty and colour that's loved by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. Visitors can journey through 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland. Every garden has its own unique attraction, featuring a distinctive group of plants that introduce a fresh burst of vibrant colour throughout the seasons. This instructional and creative workshop will look at how best to photograph the flora and fauna within The Savill Garden. We will consider lighting, backgrounds, the use of colour and composition. We will show you how to use macro settings and creatively use depth of field so you go away with some beautiful plant portraits. All kinds of cameras will do, even your mobile phone. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn and develop your photography skills whilst exploring the gardens. Given the small group size (max 12) and led by a professional photographer, we can assist beginners through to advanced photographers.
