During this fun and relaxed course you have an introduction Nature and Travel photography.
We’ll be out and about on the day in the beautiful grounds of the University of Warwick learning and practicing new techniques to hone your photography techniques.
1) Getting up close and personal – understanding Macro photography.
2) Tools and tips for setting up a temporary macro photography studio.
3) Going wild – planning and executing a nature photography shoot. Where to go, what to take.
4) Capturing wildlife – lighting, exposure and composition.
5) Holiday snapper to travel photographer – tips for making your holiday photographs something the family will want to look at.
You will need a camera that allows you to shoot in manual mode (allowing you to adjust the shutter speed and aperture) and be familiar with how to adjust the settings yourself on your camera. If you have a laptop or tablet that you use for processing your images it would be helpful, but not essential, for you to bring this and any connecting cables or card readers along too. If you have a tripod and any macro photography please bring it along but this is not essential for you to enjoy the course.
Please bring appropriate clothing to go outside.
To get the best out of this class you will need to understand the basics of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. This is the 4th in a series of photography masterclasses so it is preferable if you have attended one of Kate’s previous classes, or if you understand how your camera works but want to develop your creative approach to nature and travel photography.
