Hmmm, a 'blog'
Can't say that i know exactly what should be going on here so expect news regards any new workshops, any personal or client success stories, feedback from workshops... or ideas regards technique perhaps although i have begun building a few 'tips'notes into the drop-down menu.
So, well "welcome", i hope you enjoy whatever may happen here - do let me ahve you opinions etc on what i might include.
It is fair to say that i am a tad late in posting this but i am just looking at organising dates etc for next year's Raptor photography workshops and thought i would attempt to spread a little festive cheer whilst simultaneously and unashamably creating some general interest.
What do you get the photographer-that-has-everything?
A splendid tutored photograhy day (for next March), where they can put their (possibly new) kit to the test, learn how to do it the easy and intuitive way rather than the manfucturer's prescribed route.
We offer a very high level of personal attention, a (currently 53 page) easy read manual / guide, a full day of combined 'classroom style tuition and hands-on photography, as well as ongoing critique!
We will never be a big 'company' but really do believe that the service we offer is unrivalled - see our client feedback for proof (but give me 5 minutes to finish writing them)
Could it get any better? Well what about a xmas bonus - book now and get not only a full introductory pack for either yourself or friends / family but also enjoy a £15 discount off our normal £95 - it may not sound like much but we are already very very competetively priced.
Well we finally made an attempt at capturing a Touraco in flight last week.
Unlike our Owls and such, unfortunately the subject in question isn't trained and is in an enclosure which is relatively restrictive from a photographic point of view.
I have to confess that the initial results are not to my satisfaction but at least we now know that the required shot can in theory be achieved and just needs a further visitation when the lighting conditions are more favourable.
Not an official workshop, just a meeting of those with similar interests / obsessions, but we went off to Gigrin Farm on Saturday for the first time in a number of years.
A number of us were shooting full manual mode having practised this at a recent raptor workshop and with a little fine-tuning it would appear that a number of acceptable images were achieved - see gallery 'Birds of Prey III'
You may have noted that over the last few weeks i have been adding some basic guidance notes regards composition, camera logic, and hopefully other generally helpful stuff..
You are more than welcome to download these for your own use, but i would expect a certain level of general courtesy regards any useage for clubs, groups etc
You will find the items in the appropriate drop-down menu
