Beginners wildlife workshop

Run throughout the year this workshop is designed for the complete novice who wants how to learn to get the best out of the equipment that you have. The day is flexable and tailored to your needs and your equipment, we will be looking at the settings and what they do and how they work together, covering shutter speeds, ISO, aperture, situations when to under expose and when to over expose. Using live view to focus. We will be wondering round a nature reserve at a relaxed pace were there will be plenty of opportunities to photograph.


We will be looking at composition of the subject and using natural light to get the best out of the subject paying particular attention to what is behind the subject. This is just as important as the subject itself. By the end of the day you will have a better understanding on how to take a photograph thinking about the shot before you press the shutter button.
