Basic Nature Photography

This 1-day photography course is for people who would like to get a better understanding of how their digital SLR (or bridge) camera works and who love the natural environment and wildlife.

Our venue in 2017 is the beautiful Bradgate Park, where our participants have a wide variety of wildlife and landscapes to take photos of, while learning more about how aperture and shutter speed influence the images they take. Our Basic Nature Photography course will cover how to control the exposure and utilise this plus other camera features to get certain effects like blurring out backgrounds, taking an image of deer hiding in bushes or capturing the motion of wildlife on the move or in flight.


This photography course will include a classroom session where we cover the technical aspects in more detail. Your guide will be available to answer any of your questions on photography aspects and/or the wildlife while we are going around the venue and participants will be taking photos. She will also review some of the participants' photos and discuss what worked and what could be done differently to get high quality images that tell a story and catch attention.

The Basic Nature Photography will start generally at 9am and will finish at 5pm
(variations in view of duration and start and end times will be specified under the venue dates, if applicable).

In 2018 we will provide the Basic Nature Photography course at Bradgate Park on the following dates:
