Introduction to nature photography workshop

  • Wat Tyler Country Park Vange By-pass England, SS16 4QG United Kingdom (map)

Continuing the successful series of workshops since 2014, we will be running a further 7 photographic workshops throughout 2018.   Each workshop will cater for a maximum of up to 8 people, (for exact numbers see each workshop page for details). These low class numbers ensure that everybody attending has the opportunity for a bit of 'one to one' guidance with the tutor.

Got a new camera and want to learn how to photograph nature and wildlife?  Want to get your camera off of auto mode and improve your photos?  This is the workshop for you.
The workshop starts with a talk covering ISO, aperture and shutter speeds, what focal length/lens to use in what situation and tips on finding and getting closer to wildlife.
We will then head outside and try out what we have learned on the spring flowers and wildlife.

Equipment you will need:

  • A camera! DSLR, though some bridge cameras and advanced compacts may be suitable
  • If it is raining and your camera/lens is not weather proof then a carrier bag or rain sleeve to keep it dry will probably be needed
  • Something to kneel on
  • Waterproof clothing or something to lay on as you may end up laying down

The following may be of use but are not necessary:

  • A bean bag to rest your camera/lens on
  • A tripod (if you have one)

Price: £25 per person

Max number of participants: 8
