These programs are appropriate for beginners, as well as experienced photographers who own digital cameras, (bring a variable lense if you have) or even just a smart phone that has a camera. You will learn tips and tricks for photographing the beauty of nature and the adorable animals. Expand your knowledge of the best times for shooting, what animals and birds are available in each season, and different photography techniques. We will put those skills to good use each class when we go on our group photo walk. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
If a class is canceled due to inclement weather, a makeup class will be added to the end of the session.
Beginning Photography: This introductory course will allow you to explore all types of photography. In your first class you will learn all of the basics of photography. Each class will build on what you learned while we try portrait photography, landscape photography and wildlife photography. This class will occur at more than one location but all within the Doylestown area.
Fall Wildlife: We will follow the fall bird migration, search for bucks practicing their sparring for the rut, and look for all the small land mammals preparing for winter in this lush time of food. You will learn about appropriate settings for each type of mammal, rapid changing light and how/when to find the animals. This fun class is all outdoors and will require moderate walking distances. Classes will take place at Central Park, Wilma Quinlan Preserve, Peace Valley Nature Center and Pine Run Reservoir.
Sunday Nature Walks: This class will explore the many parks of our area, as we walk and talk about each location – we will have our cameras and cell phones at the ready. This early morning class is a great way to start your Sunday learning about our parks, the nature in our area and about photography. This class will require moderate walking (between 2 and 3 miles) on uneven ground (trails in the woods, meadows – with some inclines).
