Audubon Nature Institute Photography: Basic

 
**NEXT BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY 1 CLASS IS in April 16 and 23 2016**

Basic Photography 1:

Join Amy in collaboration with Audubon Nature Institute in New Orleans, LA for a wild photography class adventure that teaches you the basics of your DSLR camera and how to get the best animal shots.  After a lecture on the basics of your camera and how to shoot in Aperture Priority and Manual modes Amy will show you her animal photography techniques and share many tips so you can get the best shots possible.  You will then venture out with Amy to photograph some amazing education animals of Audubon as well as the animals on exhibit! Come spend the morning with us and the animals! 

As with all of Amy's classes this is a small student to teacher ratio, guaranteeing you a lot of one-on-one attention and instruction. 

You will leave this class with a better understanding of how to use aperture, shutter speed, and iso together to get out of AUTO mode, giving you the control you need to take better photographs. You will also come away with a whole new skill set focused on animal photography.
