The National Everglades is a well-known location for wildlife viewing. The Anhinga Trail in the Everglades offers an up close look at some amazing birds - Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Little Blue Heron, Green Heron to name a few - that nest and hunt in the area in February. Art Morris, Canon Explorer of Light and award winning nature and wildlife photography, is well known for his exhibits, multiple publications and is also known as a top nature photography teacher. Out on the trail we recommend telephoto lenses from 300mm and up (with and without teleconverters) to create the best bird photography and 500mm, 600mm, and 800mm AF lens are ideal. As part of the workshop you will have the ability to borrow a variety of lenses from Canon including the long telephotos. When Anhinga Trail is at its prime it is fantastic, it can be like photographing in a zoo only the birds are free, wild, and unrestrained.
The workshop is limited to 16 students so you will have plenty of attention and support from Mr. Morris and one of our highly skilled Canon Technical Specialists. Throughout the course students will learn professional insights and techniques from Mr. Morris and have the opportunity to print 1-2 of your favorite images as well as learn essential processing tips.
What you will gain from the workshop:
- Recognizing and evaluating a situation/learning to see like a pro.
- Choosing your perspective.
- Getting the right exposure: basic principles, checking for “blinkies”, exposing to the right, and evaluating and adjusting the histogram.
- Tripod handling and hand holding techniques.
- Getting sharp images.
- Light angle, head angle, and the orientation of the subject to the imaging sensor.
- What does wind direction have to do with bird photography?
- Flight photography basics.
A firm understanding of your camera operations including using manual mode, f-stops and shutter speed is needed. This workshop is for intermediate and advanced photographers. Please read the agenda to understand the workshop outline.

Please bring your favorite camera to shoot with, any lenses you want to shoot with (especially the long ones you may have), plenty of memory, tripod and laptop.
