Bird of Prey Days

Location:         Oxfordshire

Group Size:     12

Based in Oxfordshire, Helen runs a one-day workshop where you will be able to capture images of an array of birds of prey and owls.  In this captive environment, the day gives the opportunity to really get to grips with your camera. Helen will be on hand to ensure that you have plenty of time to learn the best settings for wildlife photography, talk about composition, shutter speeds, apertures and ISO whilst the falconer positions and flies the birds in the most aesthetic areas and natural environments.

On this workshop you will have the chance of photographing an array of birds from American Kestrels and Buzzards and Barn Owls to Eagle Owls.

Equipment and Clothing

This workshop is designed so that no matter what equipment you have, you will be able to get in position to take some beautiful images on the day. You are able to stand as close or as far away as you wish to take your images. Typically, a 300mm lens would be ideal for taking both portrait and flights shots. To improve your technique for in-flight bird photography the birds will be flown both towards and parallel to you.  For this reason, you will need plenty of space on your memory cards.  Depending on your equipment and its weight, a tripod is advisable but not essential.  There is very little walking involved on this workshop, but you will be standing in a field for the majority of the day so suitable footwear is needed as is warm and waterproof clothing.
