For my 18th birthday, I received a gift voucher for a wildlife photography course. Although it is now 1.5 years on from that birthday, I have at last found the course I want to do. I am really excited because it is this weekend. I will be doing it at Nature in Art/Slimbridge, and will be learning lots of the tricks of the trade, as well as learning about using a hide, baiting for photography, aesthetics, composition and so on. Also, on Monday, I will be going to the British Wildlife Centre, for an opportunity to take photos of British wildlife in a natural setting. I hope I will have a few photos to post on this blog after the weekend.
