Wildlearning - Autumn Macro Masterclass - Oct
21 October 2017, 10:00 - 15:00 (Add to calendar)
Foxburrow is a mosaic of farmland, woodland and wildlife habitats, the farmed land at this site is a mixture of arable and grazing land managed using the wildlife friendly farming practices. There is a great variety of fungi and autumn leaves to photograph.
Kevin will set up an indoor studio and provide natural props such as leaves, flowers and nuts that you can arrange to create the image of your choice. He will demonstrate the photographic techniques and skills needed to obtain better images and look at new ways of composing your subjects. Later you will walk around the footpaths and woodland with Kevin in search of fungi and other autumnal subjects and put into practice the techniques learned in the studio.
Kevin has run many photography courses for the Trust over the last few years and has had his work published globally in many magazines and newspapers. In 2015 Kevin won the British Wildlife Photography Awards ‘Seasons’ category award with his series of roe deer images plus had highly commended images in this competition for the last three years.
