There will be a Birds of Prey Wildlife Photography workshop which is not sponsored by the Nashville Photography Group but is something I thought I would mention since it might be of interest to some of our members. More details to follow in my comments below. A portion of the proceeds benefit Wings to Soar, a non-profit organization that cares for unreleaseable birds of prey and provides invaluable educational services to the community. NOTE: a minimum of 8 is required to hold the class and 10 is the maximum to allow time to interact with the birds. COST: $200 if paid for by Jan 31. $250 after Jan 31. Taught by Dianne Blankenbaker, contact her at [masked] for more information. Website for payment is www.snapgreatphotos.com /raptography. This is the part two of a workshop and requirements may be beyond the beginner camera photographer with a point and shoot. Looks like it requires a more advanced DSLR to capture stop motion and other advanced features: so if you are a beginner with an advanced camera you might enjoy this.
