When you start your journey with wildlife photography, light often seems to be your enemy rather than your friend. However, as you begin to understand light, you realise that it is the key to taking your wildlife photography to the next level. Learning to use it to your advantage can differentiate between ordinary and extraordinary. A backlit image can be dramatic and beautiful, and those annoying balls of light known as bokeh can be astonishing!
Join acclaimed wildlife photographer, Diana Andersen, for this workshop and learn the principles of using backlight and bokeh to make the ordinary more extraordinary.
