SEAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Wildlife photography is a wonderful and relaxing hobby or career, especially when you have subjects like the Grey Seal to photograph. These magnificent animals come on to land to breed in the winter months in the UK which gives the perfect opportunity for them to be photographed and watched. You will see interactions such as mothers feeding there new pups, Bull Seals breeding with Cows and Bulls fighting to see who gets to breed. It is a fantastic time that is not to be missed for any wildlife photographer.
We do all this while keeping the seals best interests in mind. We will NOT get too close to the animals we will be always watching our surroundings and for sings of distress.
On this workshop we will be focusing on all the techniques that is required for photographing wildlife. We will cover how to get the best photograph without disturbing the subject how to approach close enough and to spot signs of distress in the animal. We will cover focus modes aperture modes and shutter modes the equipment that is best suited for the type of photography that we are doing and techniques to get the perfect shot which include camera-shake and how to get sharp pictures.
The course is conducted in Norfolk which is a real hot spot in December for Grey Seals because it is in the middle of the pupping season, plus with the added fact that it is winter when the sun is low in the sky all day you can get some wonderful atmospheric shots. With the Seals been wild animals in their natural habitat the course is limited to two people per day as not to stress out any of the animals.
