This five-day workshop will put you in close proximity to wild alligators and wading birds that you can photograph with a 200-300mm lens - but don’t worry; you will be safely on a boardwalk. On Monday evening, a slide lecture/program will be presented on technique. For the balance of the week, we will be in the field photographing wildlife! The first day is at the Merrit Island National Wildlife Refuge near Cape Canaveral. The second and third day are at the Everglades National Park Anhinga Trail. The fourth day is at The Venice Rookery. The final Day is at Ding-Darling NWP. You will learn about Fresnel lenses to create a telephoto fill flash. If you have more powerful telephoto lenses or 2X converters, bring them. 35mm, digital and medium format cameras are welcome. This is tripod shooting! This workshop is appropriate for photographers and painters who will paint from their photos at home. Airfare, lodging, and ground transportation are not included. Contact MPW for help in renting large lenses.
Students attending the 300 Series Safaris will qualify for a one-day Photoshop opportunity to print exhibition quality images from their recent safari, under the tutelage of an MPW instructor. This printing day is included at no additional charge.
