    NaturesLens invites you on 1 ½ day birds of prey photography workshop, based in Welshpool, capturing impressive images of birds of prey using the varied backdrops which the locality has to offer; including disused quarries, barn & farm areas & expanses of woodland. David Miles will offer advice to ensure that you obtain magnificent photographs of these bird species both posed & in-flight.
    Autumn brings rich textures & colours to rural areas, as the leaves turn to red, gold & brown, & begin to form a soft blanket which covers the ground. This provides a stunning backdrop for nature photography, & the soft light & warm colours will allow you to capture breathtaking images of bird species. NaturesLens leaders will assist you in honing in your composition & motion photography skills so that you obtain editorial-quality images to cherish for years to come.
    Our falconer, who is also a farmer, will allow you extensive access to his land over the course of the birds of prey photography workshop, providing you with optimum choice of positions from which you can photograph the charismatic owls & raptors as they are held & released within the perfect controlled setting for you to capture impressive images. He himself has an experienced eye for photography, so he knows what nature photographers will be looking for & will assist accordingly when needed.
    The format of this workshop consists of a special late afternoon / early evening session with an owl on Saturday, followed by a full day of birds of prey photography on Sunday. Shorter days move in during autumn, giving you the chance to use the soft light in our unique late afternoon / early evening session to achieve creative imagery.
    Join David & venture into the expansive rural heartland of Wales, capturing majestic birds of prey on camera in picturesque natural habitat. Places on our autumn workshop are limited to ensure we can provide the best experience for every photographer, so book early to avoid disappointment!
