It’s an early start but definitely worth it! Join our bird expert on a walk around the farm to enjoy the wonders of the dawn chorus as the sun starts to rise on Monday 26th May 2014. The dawn chorus is triggered by a combination of longer days and the breeding season, culminating in this wonderful display of birdsong! Booming bitterns, delightful Cetti’s warblers and melodic nightingales are just a few sounds to enjoy. Followed by a hearty full English breakfast, this will be one of the most memorable morning experiences you will have.

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

Date: Saturday 1st March 2014 Time: 10.30am – 4pm Price per person: £85

Booking is essential: Call Sue on 01278 662629 or email query@clavelshaybarn.co.uk

This brilliant workshop with extremely talented local photographer Neil White is for anyone who has a keen interest in food photography. It may interest food bloggers, B&B owners and restaurant owners who would like to be able to create stronger images for their websites/printed literature themselves. You will need to bring a digital SLR camera with a standard or zoom lens. A tripod is not essential but preferable.

We will begin to piece together a ‘food story’.  Food photography is not only about the finished dish, but also the process, ingredients and lifestyle which surround it. You will be shown ideas how to shoot the raw ingredients through to capturing the preparation of the food and finally shooting and styling the finished dish.

You will be shown how the use of props and textures can bring an image to life and how to manipulate natural and artificial light.

There will be plenty of hands-on camera work, showing you techniques which will elevate your images.
