This two-lesson unit covers macro and nature photography. I think these two lessons work well together because many nature photographers are also keen macro photographers, myself among them.
The macro lesson looks at equipment needed for macro photography which can be surprisingly inexpensive. It covers composition, lighting, technical aspects such as depth of field, shutter speed, focusing the subject and focus-stacking which is an incredibly useful technique to extend the depth of field of the finished image.
The lessons look at many aspects of wildlife photography. Again, it covers what equipment is needed for this kind of photography, composition, lighting, depth of field, how to control camera-shake, creative use of shutter speed, field craft and finding a subject to photograph in the first place.
Along with the fully-illustrated lessons there are a number of projects to complete. Photography is a practical subject so it’s important to get out and take photographs. (That’s the fun part in any case). Once you have completed the projects, you then email them back to me and I’ll assess each image and reply with a constructive critique for each one. There is no time limit for this course – you work at your own rate. I think this is one of the big benefits of a distance learning course. If you have any questions during or after completion of the course, help is available. We are either an email or phone call away.
