Westonbirt Arboretum - October 2006

www.NeilMiller.info Main Page 

Our tutored photo shoot at the Westonbirt Arboretum was timed to provide a parade of autumn colours.  As it turned out, autumn was late this year, but the diversity of the arboretum still allowed plenty of practice.  This was a day of mostly very soft light (photographers' euphamism for dull), although the sun did shine through at times.

 These pages are aimed both to show some of the results, and to share some of the lessons learned.  Hover the cursor over a picture to see the exposure details.
