Photographing Birds and other Wildlife in Eastern Massachusetts and Beyond

Date: Wednesday October 19, 2016
Time: 7:30 PM – 9:30 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 looks you’re getting into memorable images that truly capture the moment?

Don’t panic. Wildlife photographer and educator Shawn Carey has you covered. 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 plus a few other “hot spot” locations—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.
