Course Description

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 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.

Please see below for full course content.

The course runs from 10:00am to approximately 4-5:00pm.

Course Content

  • Equipment choice and what you need
  • Getting the perfect exposure every time
  • Focusing and lens choice
  • Landscape photography techniques and composition
  • Lighting, flashes and shooting in poor light
  • Outdoor portrait photography
  • Techniques for wildlife and plant photography
  • Long exposures and creative techniques
  • Using filters
  • Getting to grips with your camera settings
  • Planning ahead
  • Staying safe
  • 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.

    You will need to bring lunch for the day.

    Course Location

    The Basic Outdoor Photography Course from Original Outdoors takes place in the Clwydian Range AONB just north of the market town of Ruthin. The exact location and meeting point is dependent on the weather and lighting for the day of the course – we normally decide on the exact location the week prior to the course date.

    Full joining instructions and meeting points will be sent out by email after you book a place on the course.


    Do I need to bring any equipment?

    There is a minimum equipment list but it is what you would expect for a day spent outdoors including waterproof clothing and walking boots. See above for camera equipment requirements.

    Can I bring a dog?

    Yes – but it will need to be well-behaved and remain on a lead at all times.

    How fit do I need to be?

    We will be walking for most of the day, but slowly and pausing often. If you have any questions about fitness then please get in touch.
