British Owl Photography in Evening light

We are pleased to announce an intensive British Owl photography workshop on the evening prior to our main May Welsh Owls Photography Workshop, on 9th May 2015. It is our intention for this workshop to focus on an extended session with a beautiful Long Eared Owl, without doubt a stunning subject. 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. Long Eared Owl sat in a bluebell wood photographed during the NaturesLens British Owl Photography workshop

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!
