Creative Camera Trap Workshop with Terry Whittaker.
A workshop teaching all you need to know on how to photograph elusive and nocturnal animals with remote cameras.
• What you need to get started • Creative lighting of nocturnal and crepuscular wildlife • How to mix flash with ambient lighting • Wireless and wired lighting • When and how to use passive (motion) and active (beam) sensors • How to build a weatherproof and silent camera box • Where to place your camera trap for a variety of species • Camera traps and video • Evening slideshows of camera trap and remote photography images and how they were made.
Working in a forest environment with a healthy population of pine martens and red squirrels, we’ll shoot environmental portraits of red squirrels with radio-triggered cameras in the mornings and then concentrate on setting up camera traps for pine martens later in the day. All the techniques covered are applicable to a wide range of species and scenarios.
