16:00: Summary & Close
Please note: The itinerary is provisional and subject to change depending on weather conditions and the availability of the subjects.
Start and finish times are fixed to enable transport planning.
You will be inside for the duration of this session unless we take a break on the patio area outside, so there should be no need to consider outdoor clothing or footwear.
Refreshments will be provided during the session. However you should note this is a private location and there is no opportunity to purchase additional food and drink therefore it is suggested that you bring anything specific you require.
Delegates are very welcome to bring along and try any macro flash units they may have and these can be used alongside our own equipment.
A DSLR camera together with the standard kit lens will provide a good starting point; higher spec lenses can also be used. Alternatively, a good compact camera with a macro setting and the ability to change the settings.
Tripods and monopods should not be necessary and we will have loan units available if required.
Make sure your batteries are charged and ready for action before you arrive but we can access power points for additional charging throughout the day.
Bring plenty of memory cards or the facility to download cards as its surprising how many pictures you can take in one day.
