Learn to use your camera to take beautiful photos in this natural world photography course. Join local, professional photographer David Broadbent for this hands-on day taking photographs out and about on the farm.
You’ll start by looking at the fundamentals for taking good shots – from camera settings to composition. Then you’ll get out and about around the farm, taking shots of the animals, flowers, buildings and landscape.
This course is suited to a wide range of experience from beginners up and numbers are strictly limited. So whether you don’t know your f-stop from your ISO, or you want to refine and improve your technique, we know you’ll finish the day with a fantastic range of shots and plenty of tips and hints to take away.
The day will start with a short class room session getting to know your camera settings and what they mean.
It's time to move outside and get to grips with using Auto vs Manual, Aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
Composition and creativity to make your pictures really stand out. You'll learn more about different techniques for landscape, close-up, animals and people as well as understanding depth of field and how to use it creatively.
The course will finish with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.
