Outdoor Photography Tuition - Half Day

Exclusively focus on your personal photography skills and techniques with a 4-hour tuition session in Hobart, Tasmania. With our help, choose the locations and topics that interest you most. Individual one-on-one or share with a friend.

Enhance your visual and technical skills to capture awe-inspiring images and gain more confidence with your photo taking skills on a private  outdoor tuition session.
 

There is no set structure, curriculum or location for our outdoor photography tuition sessions; we will tailor the topics to your experience, interests and skill level whether you are a beginner or advanced amateur wanting to hone your skills.

Let us know a little about your photographic interests and we’ll go from there… 

Landscape or seascapes | Wildlife | Birds | Macro (or closeup) | Sunrise or sunset | Night or low-light
Long exposures | Waterfalls | Fungi and lichens | Industrially built structures | Colonial architecture 

An overview… 
All of what you learn in your outdoor classroom is based on experimentation and comprehensive guidance throughout the session. 
What Roy shares with you is based on many years of photographic experience and an interest in nature, wildlife and travel photography – expertise that has seen him accomplish a range of state and national photography awards. 

A summary of what Roy will teach you…
 


  • Setting up your camera for the best possible results


  • Understanding and working with natural light


  • Composition to enhance your image


  • Correct exposure and interpreting the histogram 


  • Effectively adjusting ISO and white balance


  • Depth of field and aperture settings 


  • Ensuring correct shutter speeds for the subject and conditions 


  • Accurate focusing


Throughout the session you will review your photos on the LCD screen to continuously improve your skills and learn new and different approaches to photographing a range of subjects. By the end of the session, you’ll be navigating the buttons, dials and menus on your camera with greater confidence and gaining much more from its available features.
