Colours and wildlife: Photography workshop for 7-11 year olds

Learn how to use a camera to capture light, colour and shade this half-term in the beautiful surroundings of Scotney Castle.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Colour, budding flowers and lovely light will be captured in this photography workshop. Learn how to use the focus and camera settings creatively to capture spring in the amazing grounds of Scotney Castle.

Participants will learn about camera mechanics and how aperture, shutter speed and ISO affect photographs and can be used to create depth of field to make spring images pop! Participants will also learn how to make their images brighter and darker, making use of the spring sunlight, creating fun silhouettes and highlighting the bright colours.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
