The NaturesLens British Owl Photography workshop will take place during the evening prior to our main Welsh Owls Photography workshop in May. It is our intention for this workshop to focus on an extended session with a single British Owl species – the stunning Long Eared Owl. The emphasis will be on achieving some really special, high quality images in gorgeous evening light that would not appear out of place in a glossy magazine or book. The Long Eared Owl is a medium sized owl, it has erect blackish ear-tufts, which are positioned in the center of the head. The ear-tufts are used to make the owl appear larger to other owls while perched.
This event is now closed for further bookings – bookings are open for the September 2015 event, details may be viewed here.
The 2 – 2½ hour British Owl Photography in Evening Light workshop will begin with us photographing this striking & charismatic owl on old farm posts & gates. For the next part of the workshop, we will relocate to some nearby woodland & photograph our subject in it’s natural habitat, including hopefully the elusive peeking round the tree shot. The third location will be amongst some gorse which always makes for a great contrast. Our final location will be in a different area of woodland & upon completion at this point the Long Eared Owl will be fed, allowing for some great shots of the bird feeding, but you have to be quick!
This NaturesLens British Owl Photography Workshop will start reasonably late in the afternoon, with the aim of shooting in pleasant early evening light as opposed to the harsher light of the afternoon.
Please note: should the bird not be available, we will substitute in a barn owl & make use of farm buildings & abandoned machinery instead of the woodland locations.
