We’ll talk about how to create photo-worthy perches and backyard bird photography set-ups. Artistic elements will be covered, including how to create set-ups that result in visually appealing images, tips on composing bird photographs, the best lighting for photographing birds, and other key issues regarding getting good images of these quick-flying subjects.
I’ll provide in-depth instruction regarding the ideal placement of set-ups, perches, feeders, etc. so that the birds will be in the best position(s) for photography and good (read: non-distracting and smooth) backgrounds.
Equipment obviously plays a key role in getting good images — both photography equipment AND that related to attracting birds to your backyard. Therefore, we’ll spend a lot of time focusing on those topics, including taking a look at your special needs given the type of yard you have, where you live, and your budget constraints.
This workshop also includes tips on how to affordably build your own backyard bird photo blind plus an afternoon photo shoot in my own affordably-built photo blinds at Red Belly Ranch.
Please note that the focus of this workshop is on learning how to take what you learn and do this at home more than actually creating images during the workshop. If you’ve attended my other workshops, you’ll find that part a little different. That said, this workshop has been extremely well-received and folks have consistently told me that they’ve found it chock full of practical tips and information.
That said, we will spend the last couple of hours in my bird photography blinds doing some photography. We never know anymore what birds will show up in February at Red Belly Ranch to act as our winged models, but whatever they are we’ll enjoy them!
LUNCH (on-site) included (vegetarians, gluten-free, etc. you are most certainly welcome! Just let us know when you register, please).
Handouts & note-taking packet also included.
Limited to SIX (6) participants per workshop. $195.00 ~ full-day workshop.
