Presentation Description Title:

Simple steps that will greatly improve your bird photography This presentation will take some of the mystery and hardship out of photographing birds. By paying attention to the fundamentals of Sharpness, Light, Composition, Borders & Edges and Exposure you can create beautiful images of birds. There are several things to do and think about before the shoot that will increase the odds of getting a shot and making those images beautiful. In this presentation topics of what gear is needed, how to setup the camera for bird photography, how to be ready once in the field, how to get a sharp image, composition ideas for birds, the best use of light, and how to get close to birds will be discussed and illustrated. Bird photography is not as hard as it first seems, but it takes practice, dedication and perseverance. Okay, that doesn’t make it sound easy, but it’s reciprocal, the more you put into learning and practicing, the greater the improvement you’ll see in your images. Master the camera; use good field techniques, then it will be possible to fully become creative, anticipate and capture the peak of the action.
