Short Lens Wildlife Photography Course
I think you can with a little knowledge and that’s where this course will help. Short Lens Wildlife Photography Course is for anybody with any brand and any focal length lens. But the goal is to teach basic and advance wildlife photography techniques and strategies using lenses no longer than 400mm. Just how do you fill the frame with your subject with just a 200mm or 300mm lens? That’s one question we’ll answer in this two day class. In that answer is such information like finding the critter, light, flash, biology, approach and a few other essential pieces of the puzzle.
What’s required for the course? A willingness and passion for wildlife photography. That’s all! But if you want to take it further, this is what else you might want to bring. It is an intensive two day, weekend course with no field shooting. But (you knew that was coming) when you come with a camera body, a lens, 70-200 or 70-300 or 300f2.8 or 200-400 or straight 400mm just to mention a few options and a flash, I will have you shooting in the class subjects that might not be moving but will drive you nuts while teaching you very important lessons. My goal for you for the weekend is for you to leave with the confidence and knowledge you can photograph any critter your heart desires with the gear you own!
Have I caught your imagination, more importantly your heart? Well here’s the deal, we’re looking for at least 10 people (25 max) to register to put this on. It will be 22-23 June & 2-3 Nov, 2013 and the price is only $395 (pays for instruction only) for the weekend course. The class starts at 9am, finishes at 5pm with a lunch break both days. Oh yeah, it will be held in Mammoth Lakes, CA high up in the Sierra where in July you’ll have plenty of subjects to practice on in the evenings after the course. If you’re game, give us a call at 760.924.8632 / 661.204.1506!
I really enjoyed the weekend. The hotel was great. I thought the questions and answers were very informative. My favorite take away theory was that the critter does not have to fill the frame but can be incorporated into its environment. On the technical side, all of the information and practice shooting of the models with flash was extremely beneficial. I just need to keep practicing.
Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop. I feel like I learned several things and most importantly it made me look at my photography and my practices and evaluate what I do. So yes, it made me think!
I appreciate your advice on the owl pictures. I have learned several lessons from that photo prior to coming to your workshop and you helped confirm for me other things I had been suspecting. In truth it is the oldest picture in my portfolio, so I do believe my abilities have changed since then. In that spirit I submit to you my newest photograph taken yesterday with my new D800. I listened very carefully to what you said and evaluated what I needed for my photography and decided it was the best fit for what I wanted to do. Considering I’m coming from a D200 I feel it has been quite a leap. I tried very hard while shooting yesterday to keep the things you taught me in the workshop and through your books at the forefront of my shooting and think it greatly helped.
I don’t think the photo is quite in the uncommon realm yet, but I feel like I’m getting there.
Again Thank You.
PS…By the way, no cropping, I zoomed with my feet!
Hi Moose and Sharon,
Just wanted to thank you both for a great workshop. Last year I got a lot out of the Photoshop for Shooters class and Short Lenses managed to top it.
I look forward to my next Moose Peterson workshop/class.
