DIG Eastern Macro Day with Peter Warne

A look at some of the images taken on the day

A wet and windy Saturday saw us venture to the southern reaches of our region, to  Copped Hall, a fine Georgian mansion that is currently under restoration.  It is superbly sited on a ridge overlooking its landscape parkland.  The mansion is visible from the M25 which passes through a corner of the park.  The mansion and gardens are situated on a site of ancient human habitation.

Peter Warne was our tutor for the day and he led participants through a workshop designed to teach how to take pictures in close-up to reveal detail often invisible to the naked eye.  This type of photography poses several technical challenges and Peter worked through each of these both by an introductory talk and then by practical demonstration.

He provided a number of subjects - flowers from the gardens, lichen from tree bark and a selection of carnivorous plants - which will be set up for photography within the mansion.  Peter was also able to provide a few surprise items as well, such as snakes' skins, fungi and insects.
