 Garden Photography at Woburn Abbey Gardens 

 
Garden Photography Course 2015 at Woburn Abbey / Woburn 
 
 
The Woburn Abbey Garden Show is now successful running in the 6th year. 
I had a wonderful time photographing the show, as well as leading my first Garden Photography Course at the Gardens. First of all, it was a very exciting day and it was so great meeting everyone. Lovely to hear how everyone started with photography and how geeky we all were. After starting with a little bit of theory and talking about Cameras, Aperture, Depth of Field and many more topics, we headed outside and started shooting (only flowers). First on the list was the Kitchen Garden with its vegetables, from the weird and pretty ones to the very photogenic leek and lettuce. Another stop was along the Long Borders which were in full bloom and we were spoilt for choice, which flowers to photograph first. The biggest hit under the students were the little bugs on the flowers and everyone got some amazing big shots in the end. 
What can I say about my students, only one thing, they all were awesome and I know there are more great photographs from them to come. Lots of talent from all of them. 
 
If you would like to learn how to take good photos in your own Garden and how to get started with Garden Photography, please let me know or contact Freya at Woburn Abbey for more informations and when the next course will be.
Private One to One sessions are also available on request. 
 
If you want to learn how to take photos at night, our next course will be at the Woburn Luminaries, covering Blue Hour and Long Exposure. For further details and to book your place, please contact Woburn Abbey at [email protected]
