Walled Garden, Courses & Lectures, Outdoor Event
Ideal for beginner photographers or those who are new to digital photography. This is a great way to explore the garden and spend a morning or afternoon with like-minded people. We cover a range of areas such as composition, exposure, focus, manual camera settings, aperture and shutter speed. We can also look at more experimental techniques and ideas such as long exposures to capture movement, zoom effects and out of focus photography.
