After this brief session, Michael will present a session on the best wildlife photography techniques, which will include specifics that are relevant to photographing animals in captive situations. After the briefing, the giraffes, rhinos and zebras are all fair game for your lenses!
Following Africa, we will move on to the Asian section to photograph the amazing tigers, the gorgeous red pandas and any other photogenic subjects along the way.
We will then visit the cute otters, where Michael will explain best flash-use techniques.
We will then finish the workshop by spending time in the huge walk-through bird aviary, where there are many varieties of birds to photograph.
The last session of the day will be in the snake house, where the well-lit enclosures make for some great photography.
To wrap up the day, Michael will help you with any problems you may be having with your photography techniques.
(During the day, there will be ample opportunity for you to talk to Michael and ask any questions you may have in regards to wildlife photography or photography in general).
