There is something very special about snowdrops, as they are one of the first flowers to appear in the new year, a welcome sign of the beginning of spring.  The sight of a drift of snowdrops with the lovely purity of their white petals cannot fail to lift the heart. The Latin name for a snowdrop is Galanthus, while other English names include the rather lovely “flower of hope”.

Snowdrops at Forde Abbey

There is something very special about snowdrops, as they are one of the first flowers to appear in the new year, a welcome sign of the beginning of spring.  The sight of a drift of snowdrops with the lovely purity of their white petals cannot fail to lift the heart. The Latin name for a snowdrop is Galanthus, while other English names include the rather lovely “flower of hope”.

Forde Abbey in Dorset is a treasure dating back almost 900 years, with 30 acres of beautiful gardens and lakes.  It is here that we will hold our snowdrop photography workshop.

Your tutor for the workshop is Sue Bishop.  The day will begin with a welcome cup of tea or coffee while you meet and chat with Sue and your fellow photographers.  This will be followed by an illustrated presentation by Sue - topics covered will include using natural light, understanding colour theory, choosing the right background, and finding the composition, as well as some more advanced techniques such as multiple exposures.

This will be followed by practical sessions in the garden, where Sue will help participants to put the theory into practice as they search for that perfect snowdrop photograph!
