The WWT London Wetlands Centre is in South West London. Join us on this exciting, outdoor full day workshop. The day starts at 11:00am in the Kingfisher Kitchen café with a quick round table chat to cover camera settings, composition, and how to get the best out of the day. From 11:30am until 1.15pm you will take a tour of the South Route with a visit to the Peacock Tower. The day is tailored to suit your camera skills and your wildlife tutor will review your photos as you move around the Wetlands. You will be helped on an individual basis to improve your camera skills. From 1.15pm to 1.45pm you can treat yourself to lunch in the waterside café, review the morning’s photos and explore the afternoon’s opportunities. At 2.00pm you’ll put your new skills to the test at the fast - paced Otter feed, followed by a chance to photograph waterfowl from all over the world, for example black swans, magpie geese and African whistling ducks! The course ends at 4pm but you are free to stay and carry on shooting!
This workshop will teach you all the essential skills and settings for wildlife photography including handling zoom lenses, capturing fast action, focus modes and composing great wildlife photographs. The workshop is suitable for Compact or Bridge cameras with a minimum 5X optical zoom, and DSLR cameras with a zoom lens (the bigger the zoom lens the more chance of capturing the shyer of the birds - a zoom of 200mm or above will enable you to shoot from the hides). Our wildlife workshops here are run by Rob Lear. You can see his work on Flickr, and his website.
