Animals in Focus Photography Course

For Owners of SLR Cameras

Photographer Lindsay Poland from ‘Camera Perfect’ takes you on a tour through the beautiful surroundings of Adelaide Zoo to share his secrets of perfect animal photography. Learn how to photograph through glass and how to make the wire disappear plus more techniques that will help to enhance your photography skills.

These one-day courses will focus mainly on “hands on” photography. The two courses are run on a Sunday and will vary to cater for the needs of ‘beginner’ and ‘advanced’ photographers and will involve both theory and practical sessions.

SLR Basics

Theory covered: Shutter speed, aperture and film speed. Use these techniques to help photograph through glass and learn how to make wire ‘disappear’.

Advanced SLR

Theory covered: Combine technical theory with a greater understanding of composition, available light and good design. Learn to avoid common pitfalls and produce great animal image.

Cost is $150.00 (discount price for both Courses of $250.00) and is suitable for adults and senior secondary photography students. Discounts apply to Zoo Members ($130 for one course; $210 for both).

If you are interested in booking both the Basics and Advanced courses please contact our Bookings team on tel. 8267 3255 to make your booking over the phone.

Numbers limited to 14 people per course so get in early!
