Bird Photography isn’t always about a big lens and a pro-camera body.

This is a non-technical introduction to the art of bird photography. Whether you have a DSLR, a bridge camera or you use your cell phone, there are certain fundamentals of bird photography that are important no matter what kind of equipment you use. This presentation is all about, how to improve your bird photographs no matter what camera you have. We’ll look at the fundamentals of bird photography through the elements necessary to make a beautiful image. The quality of light you choose, how to get a sharp image, how to get the best point of view, how to manage the background, what to watch for at the edges of the frame, composition and exposure are all covered in this presentation. Some examples of proper field techniques are included in this presentation as well. It’s not about the gear; it’s about being creative.

One of the biggest frustrations with the modern digital workflows is getting consistency across all our of devices. Every camera, monitor and printer seems to have a mind of its own when it come to color. In this workshop, we will focus on how to get the most out of our color management workflow.  We will start with a quick overview of some of the basics of color theory about how and why we see colors and respond to colors the way we do. Then we will talk about how to use the tools and technologies to create a consistent color managed workflow so that all our images come out as expected on both the screen and in print. Finally, we will cover some the biggest issues photographers run across with their images and how to correct those issues.  It doesn't matter if you are color or black and white photographer, if you want to get the most from your images you will want to make sure that your color management is the best it can be.

Just because the sun has gone down doesn’t mean you have to put that camera away! By using nothing more than moonlight (and a sturdy tripod) you can create stunning and surreal images at night. As long as you know the basics of exposure, this class will teach you everything you need to know about taking a landscape image by the light of the moon. We will talk about how to find your exposure, the equipment you will need and even how to plan a trip around night photography.

How to Put Together a Slideshow

 You've got some great images from your last trip; now you want to show them to others.  Instead of flipping through them one image at a time, why not organize them into an automated slideshow that captivates your viewer with the appropriate music and transitions?  A well-thought-out slideshow appeals to us visually and emotionally.  Learn what tools you need and how best to construct a great slideshow using a group of images with a central theme, whether for competition, an event or personal use.
