Rhydymwyn Valley Nature Reserve. 30th September 2017.
We are delighted to announce the next Wildlife & Nature Photography Day for beginners, which will be on September 30th 10-4pm at the fascinating Rhydymwyn Valley Nature Reserve.
This one day event will be run by Laurence Clark and Kate Wilson. It takes place in the fascinating surroundings of Rhydymwyn Valley Reserve (pronounced ‘Rid-a-mooin’ !) just outside the town of Mold towards Denbigh. The site is an old WWII weapons factory which is now a varied habitat of grassland, wetland and deciduous woodland. With many of the old buildings being slowly reclaimed by nature, it is a mysterious but superb area of biological diversity and great for photography! We will have experts on hand to answer your questions about the local wildlife and advise you on how to get more involved with nature in your area. Kate has worked for several years in wildlife conservation with NEWWildlife and will be giving a talk on some of the amazing wildlife we have here in north Wales.
The photographic topics include a solid technical understanding of a digital camera, the functioning parts and the different types, wildlife tips and techniques, many examples of quality wildlife images with explanations of how they were achieved. During the day we will have opportunities to practise what we’ve learnt with plenty of advice.
You will get to practise your photographic technique on various creatures and plants we discover at Rhydymwyn and your tutor Laurence will be on hand the whole day to advise you on using your camera to achieve the best results. You do not need an expensive DSLR but we do recommend a good hybrid style camera as a minimum. You will appreciate the differences in camera types and lenses during the course and also get to understand camera trap devices.
