Flowers are hard to photograph. They are pretty much the only thing you photograph that is actually designed to reflect light. Come to Ashton Court for our flower photography course and we’ll give you a hand to get it right.

We have formal gardens with roses, grassland with native wildflowers, woodlands with tiny hidden gems. We’ll work on macro pictures extremely close-up, as well as views with foreground interest.

Ideally you’ll have a DSLR with a fast low f-stop lens and a separate flashgun but if your camera only has scene modes, this can still be a useful course – you will learn how to use the most appropriate mode and about composition. Compact cameras are best used for views and macro shots, which is just what we’ll be doing!

Please email us for a suitable date – we usually run this course as a half day of one to one at Ashton Court, but we are flexible.
