Introduction to nature photography
Under the direction of David TATIN

Stage d'initiation à la photographie de nature

Nature photography is not reserved for over-equipped photographers and remains accessible to anyone with a camera and a sense of observation.

27 and 28 November 2021

Objectives of the course
The objective of this course is to acquire the basics to practice nature photography, to manage speed and depth of field by understanding the functioning of the camera, to try different framing, to play with the lights, while knowing and respecting the subject.

Information on the environment and species will be covered, in order to feel the importance of knowledge of nature to better photograph it, beyond the technical and artistic aspects of photography.

Particular attention will be paid to the “extraordinary common”, or how an “ordinary” species can be an excellent subject for photography.
