Digital wildlife photography macro


30 Jun 10am – 4pm

Capture eye-catching wildlife photographs in incredible detail. Bring your own camera, whether it is a digital SLR, bridge or compact camera and learn how to take amazing macro (close up) photographs of wildlife. Macro photography is a great way to explore the beauty of wildlife in amazing detail.

This workshop will teach you how to use your camera settings for macro photography and techniques to capture highly detailed, sharp and well-focused images of insects, plants and other small wildlife subjects.
After the indoor session you will get a chance to practise what you have learned by taking photographs round our Blashford Lakes reserve near Ringwood and take part in an informal and constructive review of the images in an indoor session at the end of the day.

Is this course for me?
This is a great workshop for improvers, you do not need close up photography experience but you should be familiar with using your camera on your own custom settings.
If you are not familiar with taking control of your camera and have been running it on automatic settings please take the Basics 1 and 2, these workshops will give you the knowledge to attend our macro workshop.

John Combes

John has been interested in nature and photography for over 30years. A business studies lecturer for 31 years, but after taking early retirement he is now self-employed as a wildlife photographer and lecturer concentrating on giving presentations to local clubs and societies and running photographic workshops/courses. He also does his own wildlife sound recording and music production as part of his presentations. Early interests in nature photography were concentrated on close-up work with insects and flowers, but he now covers all aspects of UK wildlife as well as landscapes. Visits to the Canary Islands and Cyprus have added to his range of talks but he mainly concentrates on nature in the local area with the New Forest and Purbeck Coast providing a constant source of inspiration.
