Florida Birds Photo Workshop

florida-4 Photograph herons, egrets, ducks, hawks and more during this entry-level to intermediate-level workshop. Our small group will include a maximum of only 6 participants.

Scheduled to coincide with the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival in Titusville, Florida, you do not need to take part in the festival to join this workshop which begins on Sunday evening.

During the workshop, which will include both classroom and hands-on sessions, we will discuss how to develop a composition and learn to ‘see’ the possibilities in order to set up when the light and conditions are right.

NOTE: If you will be attending the Space Coast Festival, Kevin will be offering FREE 30-minute one-on-one photo consultation sessions to help with equipment and technique questions. Visit our booth at the festival to register for your time slot during the event!
