Exmoor Photography Course Blog June 2016
(All images & text copyright exmoor photography, all rights reserved)
Phew! What a month, fully booked this year, mainly Standard Landscapes courses, some 3hr workshops and RSPB Ham Wall Specials. The month has been one of the most enjoyable since we started the courses. The weather has been good and we have shared some terrific wildlife and landscapes moments with our customers. All have been excellent company as always and very keen to learn, ranging from complete beginners to more competent experienced photographers. There has been an eclectic mix of cameras this month, lots of Canon and Nikons with some Panasonics, Fuji’s, Sony and even a Pentax. I have yet to come across a camera that I have not seen or used before, which makes showing customers their menus and settings much easier for me.
The flying Bee challenge we set at the end of the landscape course during the macro (close up) session has been great fun. It is amazing what our customers have managed to capture, even without a camera that can shoot at 10 FPS (frames per second)!
Exmoor is looking stunning as always, everything looks very green and lush. Giving us great landscape opportunities. The heather is also just starting to flower in places, should look spectacular again this year.
I can’t believe how many breeding birds we have found this year and how long the season has been, we know that some of the birds we watch are on their third broods! We have regularly seen and photographed Dippers, Spotted Fly Catchers, Buzzards, all the Tits, Cuckoos, Meadow Pipits, Reed Buntings, most of the Warblers, Wheatears, Woodpeckers and a Peregrine almost taking a Pigeon, to name just a few!
To all our customers who have found the time to write reviews about their experience with us here at Exmoor Photography, please except our heartfelt thanks, from Jack, Jamie and Alison. They are always very much appreciated. We now have well over 100 reviews (click here).
We have also found some of our regular visiting Stags during the Red Deer Rut in October, which are well into their velvet growth now and looking huge!
Finally, don’t forget if you are thinking of booking the ever popular Red Deer Rut Specials in October this year, please don’t leave it to late as we only have 4 completely clear days available as of today.
Really looking forward to the rest of the year.
