For most, a wildlife safari is a once in a lifetime experience. So don't you think you owe it to yourself to figure out the skills you need to take stunning, pin sharp images BEFORE you get to where you're going?
The session begins at the Hilton Hotel with a two hour presentation and Q&A session where you will learn:
- The importance of knowing your camera.
- The best settings for particular subjects and lighting conditions
- How to capture specific creative effects e.g. freezing a bird in flight, blurring the background
- The importance of knowing your subject to enable you to anticipate and prepare for specific behaviours you'd like to capture.
We then move to the Memorial Gardens, a park full of dogs and birds. Ordinary subjects perhaps, but their movements are fast and erratic, just like the wildlife you'll encounter on your adventure. You'll have lots of opportunities to practice, make mistakes, ask questions and try again so that when you get there you'll feel ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way.
