Flowers are hard to photograph. They are pretty much the only thing you photograph that is actually designed to reflect light, this makes them tricky for photography for beginners, although they are really popular subjects. Come to Ashton Court for our flower photography course and we’ll give you a hand to get it right.

We can help you to learn photography in 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 photography course in Bristol at Ashton Court in Bristol, but we are flexible and there are plenty of beautiful alternatives locally.  We can even come to your favourite garden, just let us know.
