The Workshop

Would you like to get up and personal with a variety of birds of prey from around the world. For the second year Lewis will be running these popular workshops allowing photographer's to get natural looking images set in natural locations.
The workshops are held on the North Downs in the Garden Of England, Kent. The location is an ideal place for photography offering superb lighting conditions especially during the winter months.
Lewis uses a professional falconer who intimately knows her birds, the falconer also understands the requirements that photographers need to get their images and the birds are trained to a very high standard.http://www.raptorcentre.co.uk/ />


What You Need

Any standard of photographer are welcome. Ideally an SLR camera is needed but bridge cameras can also be used. Lenses from wide angle, telephoto and macro can be used. Flash guns are also permitted to be used as it does not stress the birds. Tripods are also recommended and bean bags will allow you to photograph low to the ground.

We will then break off for lunch with tea and coffee provided in the stunning studios of This Art Of Mine.

The afternoon session will then start at 1.30 where birds will be set up for flying shots, again Lewis will talk you through techniques needed to capture birds in flight. Images of the birds in their landscape will also be possible with the use of wide angle lenses.
