Workshop - an introduction to macro photography


Richard Loader will explain the simple ways to do close-up and macro photography using affordable equipment, that anyone can achieve in their own garden. He will cover: finding subjects, depth of field, sharpness, clarity, focus, styles, equipment and post processing (computer). For the practical session you will have access to a super range of flowers and bursting Spring growth on the Hardy's Nursery and even if the weather is a bit 'off' you can work inside in a cosy poly-tunnel.

This workshop is limited to 8 places to allow Richard to give some one to one time with each participant.


Richard enjoys sharing his knowledge of plant photography and is a very patient and considerate teacher. He is happy to help photographers of all levels from absolute beginners to the keen amateurs. Richard believes that with a little guidance and constructive critique anyone can develop their photographic skills quickly and in an enjoyable way even if their equipment is fairly basic
