Workshops in picture taking at aquarium

Have your say

SOUTHSEA’S Blue Reef Aquarium is inviting visitors to catch its fish on film as part of a photographic workshop this weekend.

Staff have enlisted the help of an award-winning photographer to provide expert advice and tips on capturing the perfect images.

Johnny Black has been taking pictures for more than 30 years and has won both acclaim and awards for his striking images.

As well as looking at overall composition and what type of camera to use, the workshop will offer specific advice on how to take the best photographs of moving animals, animals in water, behind glass and without a flash.

The photography workshops take place at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm on tomorrow and on Sunday.

Blue Reef’s Hannah Butt said: ‘One of the most common questions we get from our visitors is how to try and take good, clear pictures in what can be a very challenging environment.

‘I think Johnny’s photographic masterclasses will prove extremely popular.’
