The weekend of non-stop activity continued today with me running a full day’s nature photography workshop for Wakefield Council’s Countryside Unit. We held the workshop at Anglers Country Park near Crofton and spent the morning looking at some of my work, discussing equipment and concentrating on composition and then began to do some practical work. We began with macro photography and practised on some spectacular moths we caught the previous night in the moth trap and then after lunch we had a session with the orchids near to the visitor centre. We used different focal length lenses to show how we can manipulate depth of field to draw the eye to the main point of interest in an image. The day ended with some bird photography and a review of the images that the delegates had taken on the day. Here’s a shot of one of the moths we did on the day, this is the very beautiful poplar hawk moth.
