With a warm orangey hue in the evenings, the Autumn can be the best time of year to capture the essence of your garden behind a lens. But knowing how to, can sometimes prove elusive. Award-winning photographer Andrew Maybury will be leading taster garden-photography workshops at Toby’s Harvest Festival at Forde Abbey on 15th and 16th September, with tips and advice on capturing the abundance of late summer colour in the herbaceous borders. The sessions should suit those with some prior knowledge of photography, who wish to further improve their skills. Bring your camera and any lenses with you for some hands-on practice, but if you would rather just listen and observe then that’s fine too. Andrew has practical tips and know-how to put you in the picture with help on composition, lighting and technique. Join him for a wandering workshop around the garden, the prefect excuse to linger over the dahlias and enjoy the floriferousness of the long borders in full bloom.
Workshop times: 11am-12pm or 2pm-3pm Price: £15 per person (tickets for Toby’s Garden Festival sold separately)
For tickets and information, please contact Andrew Maybury (Please note, these workshops are taking place as part of Toby’s Garden Festival, so festival tickets need to be purchased separately here.)
