Photographing Birds and other Wildlife in Massachusetts and Beyond: Where, When & How
Mass Audubon Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuaries
Date: Sunday November 12, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
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 views you’re getting into memorable images that truly capture the moment?
Join Shawn as he expertly guides you through these topics and shares some tricks of the trade to help you truly enjoy your experience. He’ll explore three Mass Audubon properties—Museum of American Bird Art, Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary and Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary—all of which have observation or photo blinds to help get you closer to birds and other wildlife. Along with stories of his own experiences in the field, and lots of give-and-take with the audience, the gathering is sure to be eye-opening and lively.
