Our local Landcare group organised a photography workshop for today with local wildlife photographer David Kleinert. We spent half the morning on theory learning about what all those button and dials on your camera do. I knew they were there for a reason!
David has a great photo blog which is worth a look.
We then ventured off to a local bushland reserve to try out some of our new skills. I've picked up a few tips which I want to try out further.
Here's a few pics that I took this morning.
Practising my macro shots and getting background blurry.
Two butterflies having an intimate moment.
I tried and tried (I have the scratches on my legs to prove it) to get a good photo of a dragonfly but they are just too quick. This is the best one I got.
