About the Course

This two-day workshop is ideal for those who would like to improve their photography skills and capture the essence of early spring at Sculpture by the Lakes. Time will be spent photographing in the gardens and around the lakes, learning and practicing the art of producing well-composed atmospheric images. You will learn how to make the most of the crisp spring light to enrich vistas, plant portraits and abstract details and textures. We will take a closer look at the changing landscape created by all the new growth. We will consider what makes a good picture and how to get it right in camera, rather than post-image manipulation.
Over the two days we will cover different camera modes: programme, aperture priority, shutter speed and, if time, manual. It is suitable for those with a digital SLR or an advanced compact camera.

An award-winning photographer, Jacqui Hurst has been passionate about taking pictures all her life. After studying photography and graphics at Gloucester College of Art & Design, she then further honed her skills as a photographer’s assistant in London then as an editorial photographer in the late 80s, working for magazines and book publishers specialising in applied arts, food, gardens and plants. In 2003 Jacqui was awarded the Garden Media Guild’s ‘Photographers’ Choice Award. She continues to work on books teaming up with sculptors and ceramicists to document their pieces, as well as teaching garden photography courses at West Dean College in Sussex.
