Itinerary

  • Day 1 -

    Gather at the specified pick up point in Bangalore before your kids start the one hour journey to Bannerghatta in a pre arranged vehicle.

    Upon arrival, your child will be introduced the immaculate campsite and welcomed by a refreshing cold drink.

    Post this, there would be an ice breaking session and a brief introductory session Phillip Ross.

    After listening to the basics, your child will be guided to learn the core aspect of photography- Exposure. Whatever is included in this session will be taught to the kids such as exposure triangle, aperture, shutter, ISO, exposure compensation and metering and so on.

    Post lunch, the kids will be taken to the world of photography in a more deeper way. Focussing and Depth of Field are the concerned areas of classes for the afternoon.

    They will 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 your child how to create images with a shallow or deep depth of field.

    Then Phillip will take the group to the bird photography hide, for an entire evening (3-hour session) photographing birds.

    After that, return to the campsite and have a hot tea along with some snacks.

    Freshen up later before Phillip will introduce Adobe Lightroom to the kids and the ideal post-processing workflow to bring out the ‘oomph’ in their images.

    Phillip will ensure that each participant understands the software and will individually guide your child while they process images they shot earlier at the bird photography hide.

    Post dinner, Phillip will show and explain to the kids the images he has taken and its compositions near a campfire.

    Then they will retire for the night.

  • Day 2 -

    The kids will wake up to a fresh, nurtured morning to witness the astounding sunrise and the mist covered greenery is waking up to a shiny morning.

    Then they head out to the bird hide to try out what they have learnt so far and then click some images of the birds they see.

    After understanding several methods to click good images, they return to the campsite to have breakfast.

    Then, the highlight of the camp comes up. That is exciting trek to a nearby hill and bird-watching trail from where an incomparable 360 degree view of the forests of Bannerghatta will be seen.

    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 are the beautiful birds that can be spotted if they are lucky.

    Later, return to the campsite and wind up the camp with a question and answer session.
