Overview

About the Activity:

  • Join a two day photography workshop in an unimaginable location lying in a vast area near Bannerghatta National Park on the banks of a lake in the middle of the giant thickets. This camp is inviting those blooming young bird photography enthusiasts.
  • This is a wild call for you to uncover the vistas of bird photography and master the advanced techniques of the art. The camp will lead by an award winning wildlife photographer, Phillip Ross.
  • The Bannerghatta National Park is a bird enthusiast and photographer’s dream destination, with over 150 species of birds including the yellow-throated bulbul and rufous-bellied eagle. 
  • On this camp, there would be a special bird photography hide session that overlooks a large bird bath and natural perches that attract many species of birds, some of which are red spurfowl, barred buttonquail, yellow-eyed babbler, white-rumped shama, puff-throated babbler and many more.
  • Apart from some theoretical approach to the wide world of animals and birds, this camp is focussing on making you thoroughly understand a different aspect of seeing the wild animals through practical learning as well.
  • Anybody above the age of 18 with a passion to learn and master photography. There are no other eligibility criteria.
  • There are two variants available: 1) for single participant and 2) for a group of 2 participants.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 -

    Upon arrival at the campsite near Bannerghatta National Park, meet the instructor Phillip Ross and check-in.

    Post this Phillip will introduce you to the immaculate nature around the campsite and enjoy a refreshing cold drink.

    Firstly, the instructor will give an introductory session to bird photography to make you understand the basics.

    After that, you will be listening to the core part of photography that is Exposure.

    Discuss the exposure triangle, exposure program modes and understand Aperture, Shutter, ISO, Exposure Compensation and Metering in order to master various lighting situations while photographing birds.

    The session will be followed by a sumptuous lunch.

    Later, you continue the workshop. This time, two important aspects of bird photography namely Focussing and Depth of Field will be the topics of concern.

    Learn how to master focussing in order to capture images of birds in-flight or of birds taking off or landing with instructions on autofocus, autofocus points and focus modes.

    Phillip will then concentrate on the various aspects that influence depth of field and teach you how to create images with a shallow or deep depth of field.

    Then head to know the aspects of bird photography hide, for an entire evening (3-hour session) photographing birds as you never have before.

    Be assured of many stunning images of the various species of birds that visit the bird bath as Philip, an award-winning photographer, provides you with tips and insights on how to capture the perfect shot.

    Return to the campsite and relax by the lake while enjoying a snack and a hot beverage.

    Freshen up and you will be introduces to Adobe Lightroom that will teach you the ideal post-processing workflow to bring out the ‘oomph’ in your images.

    He will ensure that each one of you understand the software and will guide you while you process the images shot earlier at the bird photography hide.

    Post dinner, review your photographs and the skills you have acquired so far.

    Gather around the campfire and Phillip will display some of his finest images and talk to you about composition to give you an idea of exactly what you would want to capture the next day.

  • Day 2 -

    Wake up to a beautiful morning with unlimited natural scenery everywhere around.

    Then return to the bird hide once again and hope to implement whatever you have learnt during the workshop so far. Clear your doubts with Phillip and he will constantly advise you with tips on how to better your images.

    Return to the campsite for a steaming hot breakfast.

    After a hearty breakfast, disembark on an exciting trek to a nearby hill and birdwatching trail and from here, you have the best chance to sight the rare yellow-throated bulbul, blue-bearded bee-eater, rufous-tailed lark, sirkeer malkoha and many raptors such as the rufous-bellied eagle, black eagle, short-toed snake eagle and oriental honey-buzzard.

    It’s a great place to birdwatch in the morning and a great opportunity for you to learn how to identify and study the diverse birdlife and how to approach birds without disturbing them.

    After spending the entire morning photographing birds we return to the campsite, and wind up the thrilling camp for two days.
