Join us as we explore Epping Forest and discover more about the nature and wildlife that lives here.
Learn how to use your camera to achieve interesting photographs of spring flora and fauna and take good macro/close-up pictures using different angles. Demystify your camera and create some lasting images. At the end of the session there will be a chance to see the results and some tips on post-processing to help make a good image great.
