Nature Photography Course

Course Description


This photography course will show you how to photograph the natural world's wildlife, both big and small.

There is a lesson on wildlife photography which looks at both the technical aspects of wildlife photography such as correct exposure and focus as well as the artistic side of photography. How to use light and colour as well as creating good compositions for wildlife photography.

The second lesson looks at macro photography. Again in this lesson we look at the technical side such as controlling depth of field, focusing, shutter speeds as well as composition for macro photography, what type of light is right for macro photography.

There is also an in-depth lesson on exposure. If the exposure is incorrect it doesn’t matter how good the wildlife or macro image is the picture will lack impact. This lesson will ensure you get the exposure of each image spot on time after time.

Lesson 3: EXPOSURE

Getting the correct exposure is fundamental to creating a good quality image. In this lesson we look at all the aspects required to achieve that aim. Exposure modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual exposure are fully explained. Metering options such as spot, multi pattern and centre- weighted. The exposure histogram, 18% reflectance and how it affects the camera’s light meter. Exposing for a light subject, exposing for a dark subject and taking an integrated exposure reading will also be covered in great detail. By the time you have completed this lesson you will have a thorough understanding of how to achieve the correct exposure time after time.

Tutor Support

Along with the video lessons this course also includes projects to be completed which you would then email to me for a constructive critique. Photography is a practical subject so I think the projects add an important practical element to this course.

Throughout the duration of the course I will be available to answer any questions you might have about the course material. Again, I think this is an important part of the course.
