Leave winter behind and head for spring! Photographing wild songbirds is great fun, but can be very challenging. They are fast, small, and hard to find in the trees. And where do you even start to look?
Well, look no further than right in front of you! That's right. In the Soar With Songbirds photo workshop coming up in April, we will be in position to photograph wild songbirds right in front of us, and they do not know we are there. Get great close-up shots from the comfort of a cushy seat in a large protected blind, just a few feet from a huge array of birds that will come to us.
Sound too good to be true? It's not. We have found the perfect location for easy songbird photography all day long. We will be in the middle of a prime natural feeding area. And the icing on the cake is that we will be just a few feet from our cars, so no hauling heavy camera gear over long distances to get to this incredible vantage point.
Previous participants have fallen in love with this location, and can't believe how easy it is to get great shots. We will be close enough to the birds so that you can get superb images even if you do not own a super-telephoto lens.
