Synopsis

Claire Takacs is internationally recognised for her artistic work in photographing gardens, and in particular the capture and portrayal of light. Claire’s workshop will explain her approach to bringing gardens and landscapes to life through her lens and she will specifically explore working with light to maximise the impact of images.

Basic technical advice will be covered, including equipment and post processing. Focus will also be directed to looking at landscapes and composition, together with the secrets of light as the key element, to produce unforgettable images.
