The 3rd and most popular, Oxford Island NNR workshop was held last weekend 25th & 26th July - and this time we concentrated on insect macro photography. The macro workshops have always been popular with the public, seeing regular bookings of over 12 per course.
Techniques covered were:
The Discovery Centre is located in the middle of an area of great biodiversity, especially insects and invertebrates - and the pond made a great place to find many aquatic and flying insects. And we had our secret weapon with us this time in the form of Sandra Currie from the education team. Sandra has a wealth of knowledge on mini beasts and was able to put us on to some great bugs straightway! Even spiders....
It was a busy two days of macro fun, and a lot of the attendees are booked in the upcoming fungus photography in the autumn, so keep checking the facebook page and on here for the official dates. One thing we always try to do on the workshops is have fun, no matter what the photographic principles, if it's not fun, it's not worth it. We certainly did that!
Hope to see you all again at another workshop in the future, and keep snapping
