Chobe Bird Photography
Join me on a spectacular Chobe Bird Photography safari adventure in March 2019 on the Chobe river and in the Chobe national park. At this time of year during the summer season, the bird life is incredible with many of the migratory species still visiting the area.
This safari will be open to all levels of photographer, but specifically aimed at making it accessible to those who are passionate and want to learn more about birds and the art of bird photography in a top African destination.
During this workshop, we will cover the following during short theory sessions in a specially designed lecture and development area. We will make use of specially designed boats and safari vehicles to traverse the area and look for those incredible bird photography opportunities and cover the practical aspects.
- Basic bird identification
- The basics of birds in flight
- Camera and lens techniques
- The importance of depth of field
- The power of composition
- Tracking and focus techniques
- Low light and ISO control
- Image management and development (as required)
