Great Egret Rookery Shoot

Capture These Beautiful Birds

Quick Details

Bird Photography

There will be lots of opportunities to photograph these birds in flight as they return to the rookery with nesting materials. The morning light will illuminate the birds quite well.
Particular instruction will be given on how to properly expose an all white subject, as well as proper panning techniques for birds in flight. We will examine different autofocus settings and will learn to use manual exposure.

Participants will get best results with a 300mm or longer lens( please consult Sean for advice); an extra memory card may be a good idea, this tends to be a place where lots of shots are taken. Dress for the weather, this is an all outside class.
