If you have a passion for the great outdoors and would like to know how to photograph animals in their natural habitat (or even in the zoo), then this event is for you!
"Wildlife Photography Essentials" will take you on a journey through the mindset of a wildlife photographer. This is a great introduction to the world of wildlife photography: you'll learn the best lenses and equipment you need, how best to use them, the "pro secrets" of taking great images of wild animals and tips for working in a natural environment and becoming familiar with the behaviour of the birds and animals you intend to photograph.
We'll start with an information-packed seminar where wildlife photographer, Craig Franke, will show you how to think and shoot like a wildlife photographer. You'll learn techniques, settings, trouble shooting and strategies for photographing wildlife, including birds.
This is followed by a field trip to a nearby nature reserve where you will have the opportunity to practice what you have learned. Craig will be available to answer your questions or assist you if you ask for help or guidance during the field trip.
Find your wild side (and the wildlife photographer in you) in this workshop! Places in this mini workshop are limited to 12, so book early to avoid missing out.
Maximum participants: 16
Course pre-requisites: You need to be familiar with key concepts in photography, including Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and Depth of field. You will also need a telephoto zoom lens - we recommend at least at least a 70-300mm lens, but recommend longer lenses eg. 100-400mm or 150-600mm).
