This weekend six members of the club visited Swinton Park in Masham to photograph birds of prey. Working with professional photographer Jed Wee, (https://www.essence-of-light.com/birds-of-prey-photo-workshops/) the aim was to photograph the beautiful birds of prey in local natural settings - making the most of the wonderful spring flowers and the superb location.
Jed and our bird handler Mandy worked hard to help us place the birds in the best positions in a variety of different situations whilst ensuring that in the majority of cases the birds' equipment was hidden. Jed also ensured we paid attention to our camera settings, back drops and the direction of the light in order to maximize the possibility of creating some competition winning shots!
Everyone had an absolutely fantastic day and many of us hope to return again when the season changes.
