Learn how to produce superb photographs of trees in this popular two-day course with specialist tree and forest photographer, Edward Parker.

We’ll start with an illustrated talk looking at tree and forest photographs from around the world, before heading out into the Gardens to gain inspiration from Kew’s impressive arboretum.

You'll explore the capabilities and limitations of your equipment, and as the course progresses, we’ll evaluate your images.

You'll learn how to:

photograph the whole tree as well as details of bark and leaves
use different techniques, such as directional and soft lighting, colour, and composition
download, store and enhance your final images
get the most out of your digital equipment and work with camera limitations
