Online: Special Guest Series- Extraordinary Bird Photography, with Mark Buckler
May 15, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Below the course description (but before registration) will be a short explanation on how the class will run.
Birds are everywhere and generally approachable…making them popular targets for wildlife photographers…even in urban areas. This learning adventure will teach you how to make extraordinary bird photos, rather than just getting snapshots of the species that you see. Renowned wildlife and nature photographer (and former wildlife biologist), Mark Buckler, will share his secrets to creating extraordinary bird photos and provide you with the tools that you need to make more interesting and compelling images. This session will concentrate on field techniques, concepts and tips. If there is enough time, we may cover some essential processing strategies for your bird images.
