‘Dusk till Dawn’ Photography with Eva Nemeth
Come and be inspired by a flower farm in it’s magical moments of dusk and dawn…. Take your flower and garden photography to the next level by learning how to combine good composition with lighting and timing in the capable hands of Eva Nemeth, garden photographer.
Summertime in the UK can mean a very early start to the day for both flower growers and photographers, something that Eva and ourselves are very used to. Our efforts are often rewarded however with some of the best light and incredible vistas of the day. Dawn light in midsummer is definitely something we should all experience and utilise in our photography, at least every once and a while.
Of course the other wonderful time for catching the best light is the ‘golden hour’ as the sun sets. There is also the lesser know ‘blue hour’ when the sun has set, but there is still a bit of intriguing light and atmosphere left.
As well as experiencing the best light hours at the peak time in our flowering year we want to help you learn more about how to use your camera and edit your images using Lightroom. There will also be the opportunity to pick and create an arrangement to style and photograph inside to pick up styling and still life tips.
camera, lenses of your preference, tripod
Due to the light conditions, this course requires use of a tripod (5 available on site) and a remote release shutter or use of self timer/exposure delay function on your camera.
