Advanced digital photography

Maple leavesThese workshops are designed for those who feel fairly confident with the main controls of their digital cameras but want to increase their understanding of things such as depth of field, aperture and shutter speed relationships, file formats, image management and manipulation (a limited amount of time will be spent on this), better composition and exposure control, white balance and more.

Most of the time will be spent on practical assignment, as weather permits, working around the Arboretum with as much individual attention from your tutor as possible. Group sizes will be restricted to 6 to ensure we can give each delegate as much attention as they need. 

This course will greatly enhance your confidence and understanding enabling you to capture great landscapes not just on the day, but in the future.

Equipment wise, Digital SLR’s or Hybrid cameras would be best for this course. Compact and simpler digital cameras can be quite restrictive in their operation and probably would not be suitable.

A tripod is essential, plus your camera manual as sometimes we need to dig deep into the menu system to change settings.

Dates for these courses are limited so early booking is recommended.

Suitable outdoor clothing is recommended.

Course fee: £120.00 per delegate. Bring your own lunch,  tea / coffee is provided. We are able to offer gift vouchers for these courses.

All attendees will be given a complimentary copy of Graham’s book on Westonbirt (rrp.24.99), for more details on Graham's book visit
