In stock
Product Details

Photography can often seem deceptively simple when all we consider are some of the basic concepts, such as exposure, depth of field, and composition. However, photographing wild birds is one of the apexes of the photographer’s portfolio–with imagery that may seem deceptively simple, yet take hours, days, weeks, and months of planning and practicing, and a lifetime to master.

In this 2-part online class, guest photographer Tony Baldasaro will share his experiences on how to create impactful images of wild birds, from prep work to in-the-field techniques to post-processing.

In session one, Tony will cover tips on creating impactful images in the field, including:

  • Proper Equipment & Settings
  • In depth review of how aperture and focal length impact the final image
  • Compositional techniques to keep in mind in the field
  • Celebrating your subject’s story

Post processing wild bird images in Lightroom can be a challenge of its own, with potentially thousands of raw images collected in the field. Session 2 will include:

  • Managing & culling your files in Lightroom
  • Choosing impactful images.
  • Post processing techniques for wild birds in Lightroom
  • The use of AI tools to manage noise and blur issues.

About Tony Baldasaro Having called New England my home for nearly 50 years, Tony has grown accustomed to not only the seasonal changes, but also the sometimes volatile weather that comes with those changes and has come to love photographing in all of the conditions New England has to offer.
With more than 20 years of photography experience, he loves creating images that depict not only natural landscapes, but the animals found in those landscapes as well. Specifically, he loves creating images of birds in their natural habitat.
In addition to photography, Tony has been a teacher and school official for nearly 30 years. Merging his two passions, photography and education, gives him the opportunity to do what he loves most: Teach and create. He looks forward to continuing to teach and create moving forward.
