Nature photographer Urmas Tartes organises a workshop during Nature Festival

On Thursday, 8 June, at 4 pm, the University of Tartu Botanical Garden will host a nature photography workshop led by Urmas Tartes.

In the photography workshop, we will focus on taking pictures of plants and spot and photograph moving life forms where possible. We will cover theoretical and practical tips for taking pictures. We'll find out if and how much there is in common between a scientific document and a fine art image, how to make a wildlife photo and how to use metadata in a still image. Each participant will be given a minor assignment to create a photo gallery. Any camera or equipment with a camera is suitable for taking pictures. 

The nature photography training with Urmas Tartes will take place on 8 June at 16:00 at the University of Tartu Botanical Garden. Bring your camera. The training will last about two hours. The free training is free, but pre-registration is required by filling in the form or writing to Places are limited. 

The nature photography workshop is part of the Nature Festival programme. The entire programme can be found on the Nature Festival website
