Join me to learn the art of Bird Photography on this Beginners Photo Workshop
Please note: this page is currently being updated to provide workshops on a 1:1 and 2:1 basis.
This Photography Workshop concentrates specifically on birds and the techniques required to capture them in camera. Working at a busy woodland feeding station in winter we’ll have plenty of opportunities to photograph small birds such as tits, finches, blackbirds and robins in a natural setting. We’ll also spend time at a small lake photographing ducks, geese and swans. The dates in early winter are chosen to coincide with good light… and potential snow!
“I was a bit nervous being basic amateurs but Paul was very patient, friendly and relaxed which put us both at ease. He explained things in a way we understood and ensured we got great shots.”
Birds are difficult subject to photograph; we’ll look at how to expose correctly and how to use the focusing modes and focus points to achieve sharp images – often the hardest part of bird photography! A digital SLR or mirrorless is advised with a minimum focal length of 300mm. Some bridge cameras are also suitable – please ask if unsure. The location is near to Leeds, West Yorkshire.
