Birds of Prey Workshop in Mid Wales – a monochrome look

We conduct our Birds of Prey workshop in Mid-Wales for many reasons, the main one being that our falconer is also a farmer who has a great photographic eye. He has also allowed some of his buildings to fall into rack & ruin to give us some fabulous settings for our photography workshop.

Sean converted some of his images from the autumn workshop into black & white to focus the audience’s attention on the subject matter. With all colour removed from the photo, our eyes are immediately drawn to the faces of the birds

Black & white images are also a great way to show off the weathered textures of old buildings. The contrast in the finer details makes it the perfect subject matter for black & white imagery.

Overcast skies with lots of clouds providing interest can help make an image. The buzzard photo below is an excellent example of this.

Our Birds of Prey workshop in Mid Wales is a great way to learn more about creative portraiture & improve composition skills. All the locations that we use are on our falconer’s land so no need to worry about the public wandering past.  The combination of beautiful Welsh landscape, derelict buildings & special props will ensure that you come away from the workshop with some stunning images to add to your portfolio.
