Luck Favors the Prepared: Beginning Bird and Wildlife Action Photography
Registration opens to MAS Members March 11
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than honing your skills at taking beautiful, inspiring wildlife photographs? Experienced bird and nature photographer, Arlene Koziol (you may have noticed that her bird photos are everywhere on our website and printed materials!), will lead you through techniques and strategies for getting that perfect bird capture using your own equipment. You'll learn how to be ready to take the shot, handheld camera technique and fast-draw technique for action photography, the importance of anticipating behavior, importance of "reading the landscape" in the field, field techniques, and wildlife photography etiquette. Then we will apply our new knowledge and photograph the captive animals at the zoo.
Following class will be an optional lunch and discussion at ZuZu Cafe (1336 Drake St.) next to the zoo. Enrollment is capped at 8.
