Our Outdoor Photography Beginners class will cover the basics of composition, natural light, exposure, equipment choice and filters for both color and black & white methods. Over the course of this one day class you will discuss topics such as digital post-processing tools, guidelines for approaching wildlife and “leave no trace” ethics.
You will begin class at the Digital Workshop Center and then transition to a local park or natural area. Your expert instructor, Josh Hardin, will lead students through an easy nature walk, giving photo “assignments” and techniques for students to explore along the way. At the end of the walk students will also participate in an instructor-led constructive critique.
The Outdoor Photography training is hands-on and intensive, however it is designed to help make difficult topics easier to understand. Your instructor, a photography professional, will work with you closely to make sure that you avoid common mistakes when capturing your photos & help you apply best practices when possible.

I have taken 3 photography classes with Josh Hardin and I have learned so much! I got my camera almost 4 years ago, and was so confused about everything. Taking these classes have helped me so much, and I couldn’t have had a better instructor. He is easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and super friendly! Definitely take the photo classes with Josh – you will not be disappointed!
