Basic Outdoor Photography Course

Basic Outdoor Photography Course

One-Day Introduction to a range of outdoor photography techniques

£50.00 per person

The Original Outdoors basic outdoor photography courses take place in the countryside and on the coastline of North Wales with an experienced professional outdoor photographer.
Modern digital cameras are more accessible and easier to use than ever, but most people don’t know how to get the most out of them. This course is aimed at amateur outdoor photographers who want to get to grips with their camera equipment, learn new techniques or just find out if photography is for them.
You will learn at an easy and relaxed pace in the Welsh countryside, taking a wide variety of images in different conditions and learning how to improve with every click of the shutter. Relatively simple equipment and terminology is used – but you will be learning techniques and tricks used by professional outdoor photographers.

Required Equipment

You don’t need thousands of pounds worth of equipment, but you will get the most out of the course if you can bring a digital camera which allows you to manually select shutter speed, aperture and other settings. A tripod will also be useful, and other accessories you may already have. You will need to carry it around with you all day so be careful not to pack too much.

Don’t worry if you don’t yet have a camera – we have several DSLR cameras we can loan to you and even a smartphone with a good camera will do for some of the course.
