Elkhorn slough is one of California’s largest wetlands and part of a National Estuarine Reserve. This precious wildlife-rich reserve winds inland seven miles and provides an important feeding and resting place for a fantastic variety of wildlife such as playful otters, curious harbor seasl, and hundreds of species of waterfowl and migratory shorebirds. Each season is unique and you may be greeted in nature’s dynamic playground by nesting birds, feeding sharks, giant slugs and endangered animals.
Our workshop is an exciting way to visit this natural habitat and will provide excellent opportunities to view and photograph wildlife very close at hand. The cruise will include an in-depth look at various aspects of shooting wildlife while the naturalist guide provides insight to the slough ecology and fascinating history of the area.
The workshop includes a private two hour tour of the slough.
We will meet at the slough at 8:00 AM and review the itinerary and equipment before boarding the boat. The boat is reserved exclusively for us; nobody else will be on board.
We will focus on the following topics:
- Lens choice & camera settings
- Utilizing early and mid morning natural light
- Photographing outside of the box
- Composition and much more!
