On course for photo finish

The fourth and final International Garden Photographer of the Year workshop takes place at the National Botanic Garden of Wales on Saturday September 7th.

The ‘Better plant and garden photography’ course is run by IGPOTY founder and director Philip Smith and takes place in the Garden’s Gallery, from 10am to 4pm. Philip explains the course takes the form of an all-day workshop aimed at photographers of all abilities. A morning lecture and discussion will be followed by a session photographing in the spectacular Garden. If wet, this will be in the Great Glasshouse.

He added: “The aim is to provide practical tips and tricks to help you improve – but also to give you a chance to question and explore your whole approach to garden photography.”

Topics covered will include macro, depth of field, composition, digital processing, and learning  about  light and colour. The cost of the course is £36 (£30 for Garden members). Philip’s book accompanying the course will be on sale (cash only) and they are £10 or £15.

Meet at the Gallery for 10am. Bring your camera – with a full battery, please – and a storage card (any format). If you have a DSLR or compact system camera with interchangeable lenses you will get more out of the day than if you use a simple compact camera.

To book, please call 01558 667149 or email info@gardenofwales.org.uk

* The International Garden Photographer of the Year exhibition continues at the National Botanic Garden of Wales until September 15.
