We will stay until the sun sets to get as much good light and time with the geese as we can. You will learn and experiment with telephoto lenses and tele-convertors .
PCNW staff will be in touch after you register to find out what type of camera body you have i.e. Canon or Nikon. Several telephoto lenses and camera bodies will be available available for students to test. You will be contacted by the instructor before the workshop to coordinate carpooling and other details. Bring a tripod, warm clothes, comfortable shoes, food and water for yourself for the day.
