I’ve been a bit slow updating my photography blog, but wanted to include this post about Festival of the Tree (or Treefest as it was called this year), even though I’m a couple of months later than planned.
Held at Westonbirt Aboretum it is the signature summer event that incorporates camping, woodcraft demonstrations, exhibitors, family activities and local live music. I was genuinely surprised at the number of craft stalls and in particular by the number of professional photographers who were exhibiting at the event; although it did give me a great chance to check out some of their shots (for inspiration) and also to get some handy tips and tricks to help improve my own photography.
This year the highlight (for me anyway) was the Hereford Owl Rescue stand; I got the opportunity to take pictures of these magical birds, close up and without the worry that they would fly away or that I would miss that all important shot. There was also a pretty awesome stand selling novelty grandfather clocks and furniture (check out the photos, they are really cool), along with the usual bunch of wood-carvings; some of the exhibitors have very vivid imaginations; with beautiful results.
