Photography - Those Beautiful Bluebells



Spend an enlightening day with professional photographer Adrian Davies learning various photographic techniques that ensures you capture the best pictures of the native bluebells covering the ancient woodland of the Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve. You will spend some time in the classroom discussing methods and equipment before going out into the woods for your practical sessions. Please be advised that this is a mixed ability class and therefore some extra time may be spent with the beginners. However, rest assured that everyone will be given ample time to take photographs and receive expert guidance from the tutor. Everyone should bring their own DLSR camera with a memory stick and fully charged battery (a second battery is advisable). Please bring a variety of lenses and a tripod if you have one.
