Club Meeting 27 October 2016 (Encounters With Wildlife)

Sandy Cleland of Edinburgh Photographic Society introduced us to his fascinating and varied collection of wildlife photographs from around the world, telling us the story behind each image. To is important to be both patient and observant when pursuing a good wildlife photograph. Learning the habits of the wildlife will help you decide the best place from which to observe them. Sandy often lies on the ground under a camouflaged cover to wait for the right moment, and once frightened some passers by when he got up suddenly! Sandy uses a teleconverter to extend the reach of his telephoto lenses, and tracks his subjects while adjusting the focus manually. All in all, it was a fascinating evening with some amazing images (see the EPS website for examples).
