With botanical photography – of trees, gardens or flowers – it is possible to achieve stunning images using almost any type of camera. However, your chances of taking a successful photograph are significantly improved if you understand something about composition and the use of foreground, background and lighting. It is also important to know which camera settings to use in different situations.

Tutor Edward Parker will lead the walk and share his professional knowledge via a series of practical exercises explaining which settings, lenses etc to use for different subjects.
