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.

Parks and Wildlife:
  This will be an introduction to the local parks and the wildlife you can see there.  June is one of the greatest wildlife photography months due to migrating birds, flowers in bloom that attract all kinds of wildlife to feed on it and of course, everyone’s favorite – BABIES.  You will learn about how to find the wildlife and the best settings for photographing birds and mammals.  This course is shot in all manual mode on cameras and is best suited to ages 16 – 99 capable of walking at least a mile on rough terrain.

Doylestown Landscapes – Let's photograph all the iconic locations in Doylestown:  Fonthill, Mercer Tile Works, Mercer Museum, the Michner Museum, County Theater, The Shrine of Czestochowa, Lake Galena, Veterans Wall on Pine Street, Peace Valley Lavendar Farm.  Learn composition, camera settings and expand your creativity.  This is good for ages 13 – 99 and able to walk short distances on even ground.

Teen Clicks Camera Basics – Learn about your camera and how to use Aperture, ISO and shutter speed.  Learn how to use shutter priority, aperture priority, along with other presets your camera may offer.   This is set up to be a small class to offer individualized learning during each class.  You will need to have a digital camera and have access to your manual.  This will be a classroom setting but we will be practicing each of the learned items with exercises during class and exercises to do during the week at home.  The goal of the class is to learn what your camera has to offer and to be able to shoot in manual with correctly exposed photos.  This is designed for kids between 13 – 18 years of age.

Wildlife Wonder – This is for beginning photographers that are interested in wildlife and bird photography.  We will review timing of wildlife, introduction to your camera and settings,  composition best practices and photography ethics for wildlife.  You should leave this class with a basic understanding of Aperture, ISO, Shutter Speed, Exposure Value, where to find the animals and when to find them.  These classes will all take place at Lake Galena.

Summer Sunsets:  We will travel to four diverse locations to shoot the sunset; Lake Galena, New Hope Bridge or Goat Hill, Lake Nockamixon, last one TBD.  Learn camera settings, composition and have a great time with fellow photographers capturing one of nature’s best displays.  This class will all be shot in manual or you can also use a cell phone.  This is good for ages 13 – 99 and able to walk a short distance on rough terrain.
