"For my recent Birthday my mam and dad were kind enough to get me some vouchers for a company called "Going Digital" that offer Photography workshop and experience days all over the United Kingdom. These range from landscape, portraits, weddings and wildlife. After having a look at the options I decided to do a workshop titled "Hawks and Hounds" that was run by Bev Charlton set in the little village of Eggleston. What particularly caught my eye with this workshop is that there would be a mix of birds and dogs, but more importantly the setting wasn't at the usual bird of prey centre but out in the countryside. The main difference being the lack of signs, fences, people and generally messy backgrounds that show the images to be at one of those centres. Being out in open countryside with farm buildings adds an element of realism to the photos and removes restrictions of which direction you can shoot in. Now last week I was struggling to track a rally car. Well the Buzzard made the car look like it wasn't moving. It was so quick, and a little unpredictable to which path it would take between the two Falconers. Luckily it was a bright day so the shutter speed could be kept high. After several ﬂights I started to get into a little bit of a rhythm. I was still ﬁring off about 8-10 frames with each pass. I was glad I had a lot of memory cards. And that was the end of a terriﬁc day Photographing some fantastic animals. Thanks to Bev for running the workshop and David & Carol for being so amenable on the day going the extra mile to make sure everybody came away with some fantastic imagery. Something I would have no hesitation in recommending. For me it was something very different, just like last weeks Rally Championship I was out of my comfort zone trying to photograph something new that had many different challenges to what I am normally used to".
