Just Frogs Photography Workshop
These days are a relaxed way to photograph some of our frogs and are strictly limited to just three photographers per group session. Each group session lasts 2.5 hours which will give you plenty of time and plenty of space to photograph these fascinating little creatures. The cost is £55 per photographer per group session.
The Morning group session runs from 10.00AM to 12.30PM
The Afternoon group session runs from 1.00PM until 3.30PM
(When booking your day please specify which session you are booking)
The session will start with a quick safety talk and a brief introduction to the lighting system as well as the settings that you will need on the day to get the best results. After this introduction we begin to photograph the animals using our props and set ups. During the day there is always an experienced photographer on hand to give advice and help you make the most of your day.
This day takes place at: Townsend Community Centre, Jewell Road, Townsend, Bournemouth BH8 0LW
(Right next door to the One Stop Convenience Store)
We provide all the studio flash lighting equipment, stands, backgrounds and standard hot shoe triggers (users of Sony cameras that use the old Minolta Flash fitting will need to bring an adapter) as well as a number of frogs for you to photograph.
What you need to bring: You will need a camera which has a standard flash hot shoe fitting, plenty of memory and batteries for your day. There are Tea and Coffee making facilities available as well as Toilet facilities. If you want images of frogs on specific items, such as a specific kind of flower, you will have to supply the flower that you want.
Recommended Camera Equipment: You will need a DSLR camera or a high end “bridge” camera that is capable of being set to manual exposure with the ability to control ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed. The camera will also need to be able to accept a standard flash “hot-shoe” fitting flash trigger. If you are unsure of how to set your exposure settings please check your camera manual.
Lenses we recommend are a macro lens and a zoom of around 70 – 200 mm.
Some Sony cameras have non-standard flash hot shoe fitting that will require you to bring an adapter to use our triggers. (Adapters can be found on Amazon and Ebay quite readily).
