We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Nashville. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.

Join the Nashville Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

Wildlife Photography Meetup - Radnor Lake - 7am - 2 hours
Nashville Photography Society presents a Wildlife and Nature meetup, Saturday November 2nd. Hosted by Kae Wrenn. This meetup is perfect if you want a 'hands on' approach to wildlife photography. Wildlife is a game of patience, perseverance and technical know-how. It requires you to be able to think on your feet and make changes to your focus, settings and exposure without taking the camera down from your eye. We cover key settings and when to use them, the array of focusing methods available on your camera, using histograms to analyse photos in-camera as well as constructive critique on compositions. For this meetup, it's necessary to have a firm understanding of your cameras basic settings with a little bit of experience under your belt. It's also good to bring a telephoto lens as these are critical for wildlife photography.

It was a beautiful day and a gorgeous place to walk around and take pictures. I do think a macro class would be more beneficial with flowers and such around to take photos of and practice macro techniques with. I love the conversations that go on during the outings. I like getting to know and talk to other photographers that are in a similar place in their photographic journey.
