Hi everyone

1. Outing - African Bird of Prey Sanctuary 

We will be shooting at the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary, near Pietermaritzburg, this Sunday.

Its a great opportunity to see birds of prey like eagles, falcons, vultures and owls, in action. Although most of the birds are in cages, there is a 'bird in flight' show, where they feed some of the birds, which affords us the chance to photograph the birds while flying. Its an awesome chance to capture the movement and action of both flight and them catching their prey! 

When: Sunday 24th April 2016
Times: Open at 9am, close at 4pm. Bird flight show - 10h30. 
Fees: Pensioners R60, adults R70 and children R40.

The restaurant currently only supplies toasted sandwiches, scones, tea and filter coffee, which sounds perfect for us. They will be stocking up specially for our visit. 

From Pietermaritzburg: Travel 18km east on the N3 towards Durban. Turn left at Exit 65 (Lynnfield Park) and travel 4km along the Lion Park Road. The African Bird of Prey Sanctuary is on your right.

From Durban: Drive west along the N3 highway towards Pietermaritzburg and take Exit 65. Turn right under the highway at Exit 65 (Lynnfield Park)and travel 4km along the Lion Park Road. The African Bird of Prey Sanctuary is on your right.
Bring all your lenses, and try different shooting styles. Be prepared to shoot fast flying action, as well as the birds in cages. Depending on the light, you might need tripods. 

The show, as well as the bird enclosures, is out in the open, and not under cover. Please bring hats, wear sunblock, and bring water. Bring an umbrella and raincoat if its raining! You will be exposed to the elements.


2. REMINDER: May set subject - Photo Essays

The set subject for May 2016 is Photo Essays. By now you should have decided on a topic, and be preparing to shoot. Remember that you will need to print out your photos, and display them, so allow for time to prepare your display board.
