“Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them…”macro photography, dandelion, location photography workshops, bluebell woods, photographing bluebells

Wise words from Pooh Bear!  Seasonal colour masterclass focus on learning to photograph what we enjoy, weeds or not.  We look at ways of improving by incorporating colour, texture, shapes, details, and sweeping vistas.

The guided photography masterclass can be enjoyed by beginners and intermediate photographers.  An absorbing morning out, complete with delicious cake.

Perfect for the photographer already familiar with aperture priority settings on their dSLR camera (but we will ensure if you have the smallest of compacts that you’ll learn how to take great shots!)  who enjoys capturing natural light, stunning landscapes and scenery. Our locations will depend on the season. In spring we visit a bluebell wood, summer will find us in a lavender field near Selborne, autumn is where we enjoy the stunning colours of woods and lakes in Grayshott.

You’ll need sturdy walking boots and a tripod. On colder days, suitable warm, outdoor attire should be worn.

Geek speak and jargon are banished and replaced with practical instruction, easy to understand information and plenty of ‘light bulb’ moments.

DURATION: Three hours.

Attend with any style of camera and leave with increased confidence in how to take better photographs, new friends and a full tummy! You’ll receive a handy quick tips guide to slip into your camera bag, a certificate, some practical challenges and your very own (top secret design) badge!

Maximum group size of eight (book your own exclusive workshop with just four people). Please contact us should you wish to discuss groups further. £97 per person incl delicious cake!
