Nature Photography

Saturday the 1st of October
Fairchild Botanical Gardens - 10.00am - 2 hours
Learn to capture Nature and the Natural world and all its beauty! Nature photography is not just for the pros, however; armed with the right tools and a few simple tips and techniques, anyone can easily and beautifully photograph the earth. While landscapes constitute the big picture in nature photography, there is also an entire world to explore that focuses just on the details! Each rock, leaf, petal, tide pool, or branch offers endless opportunities to photograph the minutiae of the biological world. Let your sense of curiosity lead you to seemingly unassuming spots. Be patient and soon enough, you?ll begin to notice all manner of interesting details. Graphic patterns, like contrasting colors on a single leaf or the hypnotizing rings of a tree trunk, will also create visually arresting, if slightly abstract, close-up representations of nature.

We run two hour photography meetups based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.

And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Miami Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.
