Hosted by award winning wildlife photographer KJ Dudley of K1 Photography in association with Haven Falconry, Isle of Wight. An exciting half day photography workshop for beginners with an introduction into the art of bird photography. This half day photography workshop begins at 9am and finishes at around 2pm. Set in a beautiful woodland setting, the first part of this half day workshop will focus on those all important camera settings and explore the art of composition. The workshop will then move onto an opportunity to produce static, portrait shots of stunning birds of prey in a natural setting. As the day progresses , the workhop will eventually move onto flight shots, with a wide range of birds of prey , rounding off the half day with an opportunity to put your newly learned photography skills to the test with front row seats at Haven falconry 's bird of prey daily flying display. We aim to keep group sizes to a maximum of 10 photographers per workshop. The specific species of bird that will be photographed at each workshop may vary, and will be determined by conditions, the individual birds and falconer available. The birds are just like us and may have an off day now and again so we cannot guarantee a specific bird will be joining us. The welfare of the birds is paramount at all times. A great deal of care has been taken to ensure the birds and the environment you will be photographing in looks as natural as possible. The following list below is a guideline to help you get the best from the day. If you have any additional questions or require advice prior to booking , please use the contact button to contact K1 Photography Digital SLR, Compact System Camera or Bridge camera. A lens that will enable you to zoom in order not to crowd the birds during static portrait session will be required. A suggested minimum focal length of 200mm is ideal. Tripods are NOT ideal when working in a group and are generally unnecessary. However, a monopod is ideal for stability if you have a heavy or long lens. A photography beanbag can prove handy for low level shots but is not an essential item. Please dress accordingly to weather conditions on the day, the first half of the workshop will be undertaken in a shaded woodland area with the flying display in an open area. One the completion of the workshop, you will be welcome to visit Haven falconry bird centre Cost includes entry to Haven falconry.
