Learn How to Capture the Beauty of Birds Thursday

June 20, 2024-June 20, 2024

08:00 am -05:00 pm

Lindsay Silverman has been capturing birds with his cameras for many years. Photographing birds is a full-time passion and Lindsay has put together a XXXX part class to help guide you to successful birding photography.

 

Lindsay will guide you on how to choose your locations, how to select the best equipment needed for birding photography, using your camera’s EVF for getting exposure right – even in rapidly changing conditions and for making camera settings decisions on the fly so you can become better birding photographers. Lindsay’s course explores the techniques essential for capturing good bird photos.

 

Lindsay’s course will cover;

  • Strategies to get close to birds
  • Strategies for capturing birds in flight vs birds perched
  • Maximizing birds in landscapes
  • The juxtaposition of birds in urban environments
  • The beauty of bird portraits
  • Birds in morning light, afternoon and evening light
  • The differences of getting birds taking-off vs bird landings
  • Importance of backgrounds
  • Using Reflections
  • Techniques for getting birds in focus
  • Mastering Exposure
  • Get creative with slow shutter speeds and panning
  • Hand holding your gear vs tripods and monopods
  • Creative use of backlighting

 

 

I’ve been taking pictures for over 50 years and bird photography is one of the most rewarding and challenging types of photography, it’s what keeps me coming back for more.
