What will be covered

This is a full day course split into two four hour segments with having an hour for lunch and review of the first part of the day.

Photography can be quite daunting. All those buttons, dials and switches, where to begin how to attach the lens? do I just use the back screen or the viewfinder? this course is aimed at the either the complete beginner or those who wants to learn a bit more.

On the course we will touch on camera settings from Shutter speed to Aperture, and Manual if you want to try it (it is not as hard as you may think. Just a lot to remember.) also composition and technique. We will also talk about equipment if needs be.

This workshop is limited to THREE people per day leaving plenty of time for 1-2-1 tuition

Little Grebe       


For this waterfowl course you will need a bridge, DSLR, Mirrorless camera or a camera with a good zoom. The minimum lens I would recommend is a 200-500mm or a 150-600mm would be ideal. You may also wish to bring a beanbag to rest your camera on, spare batteries, memory cards and cleaning equipment can be handy also.
