Workshop format

  • We will be doing both theory and a practical – we will use both stuffed birds (because they don’t fly away!) and real birds.
  • We will be developing techniques which can be practised anywhere.
  • An example of the kind of things you might learn includes learning about depth of field exposure compensation (especially with white birds).
  • Bring your camera – this is a workshop for only 40 people – so it is interactive. It is not a lecture.
