Bring your camera – this is a workshop for only 40 people – so it is interactive. It is not a lecture.
We will be doing both theory and a practical – we can use stuffed birds and real birds – and be developing techniques which can be practiced anywhere. For example, one of the things Georgina likes to like to teach is depth of field exposure compensation (especially with white birds).
It is a ticketed event and there are only 40 tickets available. Everyone who wants to attend has to book in. Bookings will open in October.
