Photography with Mindfulness Workshop
On this workshop, you will slow down and use photography, mindfulness, and walking to look again at Westonbirt Arboretum. You will learn to take notice of the detail by focusing on colour, texture, shape and light. You will see the extraordinary in the ordinary and experience the opposite of 'snapping away'.
As well as improve your photography skills, the workshop will help you improve your every day wellbeing by encouraging you to take notice and become more aware of the beauty that is all around us.
We will start off inside the learning room, before going on a gentle walk around the Arboretum, taking photos in a calm and mindful way. The photography side of things will be kept simple, low tech and fun. You can use any device you choose, from a mobile phone, tablet or a digital camera.
The workshop is suitable for all abilities and levels of photography experience. You will need to bring comfortable outdoor weather clothing and footwear.
Please note: a second workshop is being run at 14:00-16:30 on the same day. TICKETS: £55 per session To BOOK and FOR MORE INFO please go to https://www.look-again.org/photography-workshops-nature/
The cost of the workshop includes free entry into the arboretum. You can buy lunch at the lovely cafe at the Arboretum.
