Starting In Wildlife Photography;
This workshop is designed for the photographer who wishes to specialise in this field of photography, Delegates should be confident in using their camera controls and applying settings to capture subjects in various situations and light levels. During the day you will get the chance to photograph a wide range of subjects and will be given guidance on how to best capture your chosen image if needed so as to achieve maximum Impact. Big Lenses are not necessary on this workshop but enthusiasm for the subjects is, lenses in the range of 100mm-400mm will all produce excellent results at our venue and if you have a wide angle lens then bring it along and try to capture something a little different on the day.
This workshop specialises in the techniques that can be used to successfully capture images of a range of British Butterflies in their natural environment. Our target species for the workshops will be largely dependant on the date that you select and will be given to you at the time of booking along with the meeting point for the workshop. No special lenses will be required as any standard zoom lenses in the range of between 100 - 400mm will produce excellent results at the venue. If you have macro lenses and ring flashes then you can also use these if you wish. As we will be out in the field all day then suitable clothing for the time of year will be required along with a packed lunch and a drink.
On this workshop we will be exploring an ancient woodland that has an excellent and varied range of Fungi species present, specialist macro lenses and ring flashes whilst useful are not a requirement for this workshop as good Images will be achieved using lenses from 40mm up to 200mm. Supplementary lighting in the form of a small manfrotto lumimuse will be available on the day if additional light is required along with a ring light also.
As we will be out in the woods for the majority of the day a reasonable level of fitness is required as the footpaths are uneven and in some places hilly, following wet weather these footpaths can become muddy so good footwear will also be essential. Clothing should be appropriate for the time of year and a hot drink and packed lunch should also be brought along.
On this workshop you will learn the techniques to successfully stalk and take pictures of our common deer species, you will need a lens in the range of 200mm to safely take your images although a wide angle lens will allow you to take the deer in their environment. As we will be out most of the day warm clothing suitable for the time of year should be worn, some of the paths may be uneven and muddy so a reasonable level of fitness will be required and good comfortable footwear.
On this workshop you will learn the techniques to successfully take pictures of our common bird species, you will need a lens in the range of 300mm to take your images, were possible we will be using purpose built hides as well as being given instruction on stalking methods that can also be used. As we will be out most of the day warm clothing suitable for the time of year should be worn, some of the paths may be uneven and muddy so a reasonable level of fitness will be required and good comfortable footwear. You may wish to bring a packed lunch and a drink for the day as not all venues will have food available.
