Predominantly wildlife and landscape photography, but also including drone, aviation, macro and architectural images, this talk aims to have something for everybody. You’ll hear the stories behind the images, what I was hoping to achieve and how I went about it. As a helpful guide, camera settings accompany each image.

Let's Go Outdoors
This Thursday we are meeting at the Winery in Burton on Trent with the intention of an outdoor shoot in the gardens of the Abbey (weather permitting) -

We have some portable lighting - but feel free to bring your flash gun if you want.

We shall have Jessica as our model (and hopefully her young daughter too) - dressed in a long dress with a black hooded cloak - think of lost souls wandering the grounds....scottish widows etc,., I hope that we can get some dark and moody atmospheric shots (example below)

Meet at the Winery at 7:30pm - the shoot will run for 2hrs - and if you dont want to be outside for that long you can go indoors for a beer

Paul Bingham - Birding Costa Rica
Central America’s Costa Rica is a dream destination for most birders. The size of Wales, it has more species of bird per square mile than any other country in the world. Sandwiched between the Caribbean and Pacific, with an altitude up to 12,500ft and several active volcanoes there are many and varied habitats for wildlife. As this was specifically a birding (rather than a general touring) trip then there will be a lot of wildlife pics, especially birds. You have been warned!
