Peak Nature Photography

Peak Nature Photography

I had a fantastic day with Chris Johnstone (http://www.peaknature.co.uk/) doing a bit of hide and landscape photography as part of one of my assignments for the University of Nottingham MSc Biological Photography & Imaging to spend a day with a working photographer. It was a classic day in England: windy and rainy. I really shouldn’t expect anything less at this point haha. But that didn’t stop me from having an incredible day. I learned about local bird behavior (and how crazy jays go for peanuts), hides and perch construction (aka the luxuries of photographer life), light and landscapes (move cloud move cloud move cloud, okay quick take the photo!), and neutral density filters (make your photographs instant epic). Chris and I traded some American and Scottish slang and laughed at the extremely rotund pheasant that trolled the hide area. It was a great way to finish up my last week of classes before Easter break (how is it Easter already???) and a nice break from constantly staring at my computer for hours on end doing work. I can’t believe I’m going into the home stretch of this Master’s program! And then maybe I’ll eventually get to post all the blogs I meant to write lol.
