You like to be outside in nature and adore the magical world of the forest? You want to capture what you love expressively with your own camera? Great!

We will spend a nice weekend together in a small group, enjoy the peace and beauty of nature and at the same time learn something about nature photography. Because that is exactly what our photo workshop nature is designed for: Theoretical and practical learning in the middle of a beautiful forest.

Photo course nature – the contents what we teach you

Being together and enjoying nature are only two benefits of our nature photo workshop. The contents of the workshop itself will be just as exciting! E. g. techniques for nature photography and knowledge about the exposure triangle ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, which is not only useful for beginners, but also for advanced photographers. Further contents are the specific techniques for nature photography and tips for improving your macro photography - which is essential in nature photography. We will also give you advice on backlight shooting and long exposures.

We also sharpen your senses by using techniques from forest bathing. Mindfulness exercises are additionally part of the course.

I completed the 7-month masterclass at the Berlin School of Photography and it was a great success for me. I started without much prior knowledge, having previously only taken a one-day smartphone photography course (also at the BSoP). That had already motivated me a lot! From there it really took off: starting with the technical basics, artistic fine-tuning and experimental photography, I learned more than I had in a long time. Our trainers were equally committed, knowledgeable and highly motivated, so that this motivation also rubbed off on us participants. And there was a great atmosphere in the group of participants, a lot of mutual exchange and support, just great. Definitely a full 5 out of 5 points, big recommendation!!

I recently completed the 7-month photo coaching and am still impressed and positively influenced by the enriching time in every facet.I learned a lot about photography during this time and am very grateful for this experience.The patience that was shown to answer my questions, the many inspirations and different perspectives made the coaching very valuable for me.Over time, a great community has formed between the coaches and coachees, who have always supported each other.I found it very exciting and beneficial that the content of the coaching was conveyed by different coaches.The big highlight was our final photo project entitled “Transformation”, which we were able to exhibit in Field Five.I don't want to miss the time.Many thanks to you Bettina, Nina, Rocio, Alberto and my coachees❣

I took the course for beginners and am super satisfied! I learned a lot about using the camera and was also able to get to know many beautiful corners of Berlin from inspiring perspectives. I can recommend the course with a clear conscience☺️

I had a new camera and barely knew how to use it. In one-on-one lessons with Bettina, I not only learned the technique, but also developed an unexpected enthusiasm for photography in a very short time and will definitely continue. Thank you for this quick and individual introduction with a good price-performance ratio.

I absolutely enjoyed my course at the BSoP after being a guest at the Vernissage of the Master class. I learned do much and my photographic skills improved massively. Thank you - next time again. I can recommend it strongly.

My impression after a beginners course: Far from a professional school of photography. A very old-fashioned presentation was shown for the introduction. There was no apparent concept to me all day...I didn't learn anything that I wouldn't have learned better from books or YouTube tutorials. The handout that was sent to us later was not very informative. Plus point: Bettina called me after this review to see what she could do better. Unfortunately, the conversation and their arguments did not convince me and I still cannot recommend the course.

My partner and I did the Level 1 course with Alberto and really enjoyed the course and our day! Alberto was a professional and thorough teacher while still leaving lots of time to ask questions and get creative. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone hoping to learn more about their camera and start to embark on their first steps to becoming a better photographer.

I highly recommend the Forest Photography course to anyone who wants to learn more about photography and be closer to nature. Bettina is very inspiring, full of interesting stories and a skilled photographer. She hosted us in an idyllic setting, thought us the most important photography techniques and guided us on a forest bathing to awaken our senses and creativity before we could wander off on our own to put all that we learned into practise. We concluded the day with soup and cake and reviewing the photos that we took that day. For me it was an amazing experience.
