Relearning Photography

Creative with Cameras

Lovely company and a really enjoyable day at our workshop on 30th August.

We spent most of the morning talking about how to use the settings on our camera to be more creative when taking our photographs when close up and landscape.

Some practice in the studio and in the gardens helped everyone get more familiar with a ‘non-automatic’ way of thinking about photography.

An Amazing Day

This was such a happy day for the couple who married in their local church at Wark, Northumberland and visited The Photographers’Garden for some photography on their big day. As relaxed and as informal as a wedding could possibly be, friends and family made the day just perfect.

Rock, Roses, Rain and Reflection

The Photographers’ Garden is holding a Photography Workshop on Friday, 30th August, 2019.

We begin around 10am with some light conversation over morning coffee and explore artistic and technical ways to get more enjoyment from your photography. We will talk about how to use your camera settings to make your ideas into photographs and venture into the gardens to put it all into practice.

Lunch is provided, with most of the fruit and vegetables coming from the Garden. We usually end the day with a cup of tea and cake, and a concluding conversation about your photography.

We will be a small group, intending to provide individual conversations and guidance over the day, making the tuition as flexible as possible whatever your photographic interests or current skills.

The cost of the day is £90 including lunch, teas and coffees. A follow up meeting is also included (at a date to be mutually arranged either with the group or individually) to further your skills and knowledge.

To book, please call 07711305576.

 

 

Let’s see how it grows

Peony Surprise

 

Photography is like gardening, get the science somewhere near right and you have success, take time to play around with the science and the contents and you have art.  As we have rushed headlong into the world of snap and shoot and the selfie culture prevails, we have also become used to instant flower baskets in springtime.

Good gardens evolve with a great deal of consideration and thoughtful planning, as do good photographs. Slowing down the potential snapshot to contemplate how the photograph will look, what it will say to the viewer, what it will say to you, the photographer considers what to include in the frame and what to leave out and becomes engrossed for a time in imagining, visualising in the minds eye the final effects of their design.

Thirsty work

Brown Grass, Thirsty Thrush.

 

Baking heat and no rain for what feels like weeks, a little song thrush was so thirsty she was trying to catch droplets of water from the sprinkler on the vegetables patch. Although there is a trough of water nearby for the birds, it clearly isn’t enough. So, plans to dig out a wildlife pond in 2019 were hurriedly brought forward and work has begun.

Visitors Welcome
