On Friday just gone off I went on another photography workshop being run by Daniel Bridge. Todays workshop was held at a local plant/flower nursery about 6 miles from where I live so an easy journey for me. Because of where it was being held the emphasis would be on taking photo’s of plants and flowers. There was a poly tunnel made available for us and we were free to either go out into the nursery with tripod and camera and take photo’s or to find plants in pots that we could then take back into the poly tunnel. We could set up the photo in a composition we wanted with the aid of coloured backdrops etc. and believe me I took full advantage of this as it was so lovely to have many plants of different colours, shapes and sizes to choose from.
As there was quite a strong breeze around I found it easier to do all my photography indoors and it was such a lot of fun setting up the plants to create a composition that I liked. I could then also play with different settings etc. without having to worry about the breeze. Daniel was of course on hand with his usual help and advice.
I must say I came away yet again having learnt a little more about taking a photo.
So here are a few I took including the one at the top of this post…
