Located in the north Cotswolds, Batsford Arboretum is home to one of the largest private tree collections in the country. It offers visitors year round interest - from the spring blooms provided by the beautiful Japanese flowering cherries to autumn’s spectacular display of colour. Here you can wander through 56 acres of wild gardens, paths and streams and discover the beautiful oriental-influenced statues hidden in glades around the grounds.

With such variety on offer, Batsford offers the photographer a wealth of opportunities in terms of graphic compositions and the chance to be creative with patterns, texture, colour and close-up detail.

This fun and challenging one-day workshop has been designed to help you build upon your existing photographic skills by developing your creative eye, and helping you to look beyond the obvious.

We will look initially at the composition and effective capture of close up images, with the emphasis on capturing shape, form and texture. You will then have the chance to experiment with ICM (intentional camera movement)- using techniques such as panning and zoom bursts to create some unique abstract images, and we will also be exploring in-camera multiple exposures. Experimentation is key here and you will be encouraged to find your own way of capturing the subject.
