Over the last ten years, bird and wildlife photography has seen a surge in popularity— thanks in large part to vast improvements in digital technology. Digital cameras are better, easier to use, and more affordable than ever. But how do you choose the right one? And once you have the camera, what’s next? Where do you go? When should you get there? And how do you turn those great looks you’re getting into memorable images that truly capture the moment?

The workshop will include:

Section #1:  Photo equipment; cameras, lenses, tripods, photo blinds and other “odds and ends”.

Section #2:  Location, location, location! Where and when you photograph birds in Massachusetts and what equipment is needed at each site. Plus some other locations in the US that you might want to visit.

Section #3: You know what camera equipment to use and where to go to photography birds and other wildlife in Massachusetts. However what do you do with the hundreds maybe even thousands of digital photos? How to organizing them? For this section we will look at using Adobe Lightroom to help us with keywords and how to organization your photo/files. Also a quick look at processing photos for output to e-mail or web.
