Spring Photography Workshops at Batsford Arboretum

Three Hour Workshop at Batsford Arboretum. Discover the true beauty of Autumn in this stunning setting. Situated very close to Moreton in Marsh, close to the Oxfordshire / Gloucestershire and Warwickshire borders this natural woodland is home to one of the largest private tree collections in the country, It's also famed for trees which originate in Japan and China. 

Batsford

The collection includes a number of Red Data species which are extinct in the wild and several UK champion trees, famed for their size. We'll walk around the Arboretum with you and show you the best techniques for capturing the beautiful autumn colours. 

In order to join us on this workshop you'll need a camera with full manual controls preferably. A Digital SLR would be great but great results can be obtained with other CSC or Bridge cameras too. We'll walk you through the basic setting of your camera for any than need it but for those already familiar with the settings then you can dive straight in.

You must be 16 years of age or older to attend this workshop.
