Photography Series: Intro to Nature Photography

Past Event

Celebrating the beauty of the outdoors, nature photography is an art form focused on the elements found all around us (landscapes, wildlife, plants, etc.). Try your hand at an introductory course that features the Sunnylands gardens as the perfect setting to sharpen your nature photography skills.

Led by photographer Grant Komjakraphan, participants will learn basic outdoor camera techniques, such as lighting, shadows, action shots, framing small- and large-scale objects, and more. Each participant will receive a print of their favorite photo captured during the workshop.

No specific photography equipment is required. Using whatever type of camera you are most comfortable handling, the instructor will tailor the lesson to the individual skillset of each participant. Open to all skill and experience levels.
