Sunday 19th May - Birds of Prey Workshop

We were lucky enough to have almost perfect conditions; not too bright and very little wind.  Jonathan and George, our instructors, and Mike and Ross the falconers, ensured we had the most fantastic day.

The technical information provided in the classroom at the beginning of the workshop was pitched at just the right level to give everyone a better chance of success and the individual help and support out in the field was much appreciated.

Hopefully, we will remember all the technical information and tips from the workshop and be better prepared if we ever get the chance to capture images of birds of prey in the wild.

Tuesday 7 May Focus On … Close Up and Macro

Over 30 images were on display in this Focus On event.  It was good to see that many people had experimented with the tips and techniques which Robin had given us at meetings earlier this year.  And our Club events had proved handy as several of the images were taken at Blickling two Sundays ago.

Everyone at the meeting cast their votes for their favourite images.  Congratulations to Di Daniels, Roy Scrivener, Marnie Ball and Francesca Shearcroft whose images got the most votes.  We finished off the evening with each photographer describing the techniques they used and the audience joining in with their observations.
