      Painted Bunting Photography Workshop

      FOUR (4) SEPARATE evening-based Painted Bunting Photography Workshops Offered
      ~ Each only with space for FOUR (4):
      This is such a popular workshop with such limited space that I’ve decided to offer it four (4) times in 2018:

      Saturday, June 30, 2018 workshop ~ TWO (2) spots left for this date ~
      Sunday, July 1, 2018 workshop
      Saturday, July 7, 2018 workshop
      Sunday, July 8, 2018 workshop
      Join me for my evening-based Painted Bunting Photography Workshop ~ 2018 and photograph these vibrant and colorful birds. The workshop includes two photo shoots, one of which takes place during the sweet light at day’s end.

      A rainbow assortment of colors make male Painted Buntings one of North America’s most colorful photographic subjects. Females -—- with their bright yellow-green feathers -—- also make great “models.”

      You’ll find these cover-loving birds throughout much of Texas during their summer breeding season. However, spotting and photographing them can be tough. But not at Red Belly Ranch where I’ve set up feeding stations & blinds specifically to make viewing and photographing them fully possible.

      While Painted Buntings have received a IUCN Conservation Status of “Near Threatened,” we’re blessed with these beauties each summer during their breeding season. Here you can watch these dazzlingly decorated male members of the Cardinal family perch in the open and sing sweet tunes and, at special set-ups, photograph both males and females.

      The workshop includes instruction on songbird photography techniques. We’ll focus on set-ups, backgrounds, exposure, and lighting as it relates to creating your best images.

      To maximize photo ops & your experience, I’ve limited each workshop to four (4) participants. Each Painted Bunting Photography Workshop ~ 2018 includes an early dinner, served on-site. Each workshop takes place from 2:00 p.m. until it’s too dark to shoot (approximately 9:00 p.m.).
