It's Not Too Late

What’s Up?

I scouted Gatorland on Friday afternoon. Though it is a relatively poor year so far, there were a few really sweet Snowy Egrets and some very nice tricolors. See below to learn the big problem at Gatorland.

All created with the hand held Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens, the Canon Extender EF 1.4X III, and the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera (Body Only). Some with on-camera ETTL fill flash.

It’s Not Tool Late

The problem at Gatorland is that folks do not know how to spot the good situations … There were four folks there and I did not see one of them make a good image … I made all the images above in just 30 minutes with just the hand held 100-400 II, the 1.4X III TC, and the 5D IV. Some with ETTL fill flash.

It is still not too late to join me tomorrow or Sunday morning as below. Cash is fine. You must shoot me an e-mail tonight. I will either respond tonight or by 6:30am tomorrow. We meet at 7am at the early morning entrance at the south end of the string of parking lots 🙂

Gatorland In-the Field Instructional Meet-Up

Join me in Kissimmee, FL as below, to photograph Great (with chicks in the nest) and Snowy Egrets in breeding plumage, Wood Stork, American Alligator (captive), and more. Tricolored Heron likely. We should get to make lots of head portraits of all the bird species and to photograph them building nests, displaying, copulating, and flying. Learn to see, find, and make the shot in cluttered settings. Learn exposure and how to handle WHITEs. Learn fill flash and flash as main light. All of the birds are free and wild.

This Weekend’s Schedule

Saturday morning (early entry): 7:30 till 10am: $100. Lunch and Image Review: $75 additional.
Saturday afternoon till closing (late stay): $100.
