RSPB Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve is a great example of a Scottish wetland. Year-round, the reserve is home to a variety of fungi and flowers as well as birds, insects, and mammals, all of which provide countless photographic oppotunities. This makes the reserve a perfect location for wildlife and nature photography whether you're a beginner with a basic DSLR and kit lens or a seasoned professional with a top of the range DSLR and super-telephoto lens.
Through practical exercises and demonstrations, you will learn various techniques and camera settings used by professional photographers to photograph insects, flowers, perched birds, and birds in flight, as well as how to expose your photographs properly, how to adjust your aperture, shutter speed, and ISO for both sharp photographs and for creative effect, what compositional tools work best, how best to use the available light, how to use flash, and much more. Most importantly, you will learn all of this using your own camera equiment, ensuring that you can go forward taking the best photographs you possibly can.
The RSPB Ramble workshop is run on weekdays between 10am and 2pm with a break for lunch and as many tea/coffee breaks as you like (tea/coffee and lunch not provided). Entrance to the visitor centre and the reserve's trails and hides is included. No deposit is required but payment must be made in full at the start of the workshop. In the event of inclement weather, the workshop may be postponed. Participants must supply their own cameras and lenses and ensure they are in good working order with sufficient battery power for the duration of the workshop.
