Swiss Garden Photography Workshop Hosted by Darren Harbar
Saturday 31 July 2021
The Darren Harbar Photography workshops are designed to help clients get more from their DSLR or CSC cameras. They are not really suited to compact camera users, as you need a camera that allows manual control of shutter and aperture. As a basic rule of thumb, if your camera has interchangeable lenses, then it’s likely to be what you need for a workshop.
The specialist themes attract a wide range of photographers, but each workshop always covers the basics of how to use the camera settings. For some, this is an escape from using auto settings, and for others, it’s a useful refresher of the basics. Each workshop includes an initial theory session before the rest of the day is used for practical instruction. Lunch is always provided at the chosen venue, and there’s a great deal of unique opportunities organised during the workshop that will ensure you have plenty of value for money.
This workshop is hosted by the wonderful Shuttleworth Trust with its stunning Swiss Garden providing superb photographic opportunities. Your day starts with a theory presentation on how best to use your camera settings. This is followed by some time in the gardens where you get to practice some photography and get help with camera settings. After lunch, you’ll head back into the garden to learn more about composition, creative ideas and further help on camera settings. The event is limited to 22 people, which ensures it remains a personal day and allows everyone to get the access they desire.
