Photographing Dragonfly Nymphs and Pond Creatures at Wat Tyler CP
22nd September 2018

Over the last 7 years I have been working on ways to photograph the creatures that live in and on our ponds, such as pond skaters, water boatman and dragonfly nymphs.  The workshop will start with a presentation running through the techniques I use to get the photos, followed by a very short walk to the ponds to catch some subjects.  Then we will spend the majority of the time using the photographic aquariums to get shots of the dragonfly and damselfly nymphs and other interesting species found in ponds.

No. participants: min 3, max 8

Price: £26.25 per person

Time: 10am to 1.30pm

The workshop will start with a presentation on what I have found to be the best techniques and compositions when photographing fungi and other subjects, followed by a walk around the woods try them out on the subjects there.
