With: Joe Wainwright, Professional Garden Photographer
Date: Tuesday 12th July, 2022
Venue: Bluebell Cottage Gardens, Lodge Lane, Dutton, near Warrington, Cheshire WA4 4HP
Following on from the success of the lockdown Photography session that Joe Wainwright kindly did for us via zoom last year, there was lots of interest in having a hands on practical session, so I’m delighted to announce this one day workshop with Joe at Bluebell Cottage Gardens.
The workshop will use a combination of a presentation, practical work and personal feedback to give designers an understanding of:
- How to achieve good composition using a variety of techniques
- How to take advantage of different lighting conditions
- How to spot the best photographic possibilities in their gardens
- How to use more advanced settings (if available on their cameras), to achieve greater impact in their photos
