Have you ever eagerly taken pictures of an exciting plant, only to get home, check your phone and find all your photos are out of focus? This session will help you focus on your forget-me-nots and frame those foxgloves.
Botanist and author Leif Bersweden promotes plants by sharing his photos on social media. He will talk about the dos and don’ts of amateur botanical photography, what parts of the plant are useful to photograph for identification and much more.
Leif will be joined by Plantlife’s Pip Gray who will share how your botanical photos can support our conservation goals.
Leif Bersweden is a writer, botanist and nature communicator with a face-down, bottom-up approach to watching wildlife. He grew up in rural Wiltshire where he taught himself how to identify the local flora and has championed our wild plants and the joy they bring ever since. He is the author of The Orchid Hunter (2017) and Where the Wildflowers Grow (2022).
Pip works within Plantlife’s communications team, and when she’s not scrabbling along the floor taking photos and videos of our wild and wonderful plants and fungi in Wales, she’s helping to share the incredible work our team of staff and volunteers with supporters and members.
