This weekend-long course will show participants how to make the most of their cameras and take stunning nature shots on a day's bush field-trip.
Day One covers:
- the difference between a camera’s automatic and semi-automatic operation
- manual settings
- the relationship between aperture, ISO and shutter speed
- composing a photo
- using natural light
You’ll practice your skills in and around the Kaipatiki Project plant nursery and will get feedback on your photos.
Day Two will be spent in the forest, capturing photos of plants, geckos, spiders, birds and beasties.
Dress warmly and pack a rain jacket, bring some snacks, water, good walking shoes and your own camera equipment.
