Sat 13 Apr - Sun 27 Oct Chihuly at Kew: Reflections on nature


Want to dive into the extreme close up world of macro and still life photography? Then come on this course and learn the techniques for capturing detailed and exciting nature macro photos both in the studio and outside in the Gardens (weather permitting).

Using daylight, constant and flash lighting as well as other techniques to get the best out of each subject, we will be working with various flowers and objects from nature.

Please note, it is recommended to bring a camera that is able to focus close up or that has a macro feature. The tutor will also have cameras set up that can be used if you bring a standard SD card to enable you to take the photos away afterwards.
