  • Harris’s hawk (possibly)

Topics covered:

  • Camera modes (tv, s, av, and manual) with a focus on why manual

  • Off camera flash some techniques for the use of fill flash
  • Shooting without and with a tripod
  • Portrait work with the birds

Equipment suggested:

  • lenses 70-200 or 70-300, primes of 300, 400 or 500 although the 500 is usually too much reach
  • tripod

We will start at 7 am to get some good early morning light. You get to spend about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes with each bird, learning and practicing your skills in a real world setting. With a maximum of 12 participants there will be a lot of one on one instruction and with such a small group everyone will be able to get great shots of these magnificent birds. This opportunity will not be available again until the fall. Since this is in February and it will be early morning dress in layers as it will be cold.
