About this Event

Explore the beauty of wild birds through photography. Bring your own camera, whether it is a DSLR or bridge camera and learn how to take beautiful photographs of birds. Birds are fascinating creatures to watch and taking photographs of them with their quick movements is challenging but rewarding.

This workshop will teach you how to use your camera settings for bird photography and the techniques to take stunning photographs of birds in their natural surroundings.

After the indoor session you will get a chance to practise what you have learned by taking photographs round our Blashford Lakes reserve near Ringwood and take part in an informal and constructive review of the images in an indoor session at the end of the day.

Please note: This workshop is unsuitable for compact cameras.

Is this course for me?

This is a great workshop for improvers, you do not need bird photography experience but you should be familiar with using your camera on your own custom settings. You will need a DSLR or bridge camera to attend this workshop.

If you are not familiar with taking control of your camera and have been running it on automatic settings please take the Basics 1 and 2, these workshops will give you the knowledge to attend our macro workshop.

Tutor - John CombesJohn has been interested in nature and photography for over 30years. A business studies lecturer for 31 years, but after taking early retirement he is now self-employed as a wildlife photographer and lecturer concentrating on giving presentations to local clubs and societies and running photographic workshops/courses. He also does his own wildlife sound recording and music production as part of his presentations. Early interests in nature photography were concentrated on close-up work with insects and flowers, but he now covers all aspects of UK wildlife as well as landscapes. Visits to the Canary Islands and Cyprus have added to his range of talks but he mainly concentrates on nature in the local area with the New Forest and Purbeck Coast providing a constant source of inspiration.
