If you are new to the world of bird and wildlife photography or you are looking to brush up on some existing skills, then this half-day 1-2-1 bird and wildlife photography course might just be what you need.
Photographing birds isn’t easy, they move pretty quickly and you need to really know your camera in order to get the best shots. On this half-day course, we will cover:
- The best settings and modes on the camera to successfully capture birds both in flight and when they are settled.
- How to achieve the correct exposure, how to find the best light and where to position yourself for the best shots.
- The best focusing modes and focus points to ensure you capture sharp images each and every time.
- For consistent, successful photographs it is important to understand bird behaviour which we’ll cover and look at how to compose a visually pleasing image.
This is a hands-on course and we’ll spend most of the time in a bird hide giving you the chance to practice everything that we cover there and then on location.
This is a 1-2-1 training course and as such, no skills are required to attend this course. The only equipment you will need to bring with you is your camera and lenses. You will need a zoom lens (or digital zoom), ideally 200mm+ to get close up images of the birds.
We’ll run until finished but they usually last around 4 hours long.
This course will take place at a wildlife park near Newquay, Cornwall, UK. The exact location will be provided upon confirmation of your booking.
