Do you have a fondness for birds and want to photograph them better? This class is for you. We will discuss locations and what kinds of birds we will find. Apps on our phone to help us identify birds. We will talk about our equipment and making it work for us. We will also be doing some hiking to use our skills. Birds have a lot of personality and we will look for the behaviors they have so we can get better at photographing them. There are a lot of bird feeders for us to gather around or separate and use our skills. The hike is 3 miles round trip it is a fairly flat hike and we can bring wagons to help with gear, if you can't do the hike you are welcome to stay at the feeders to shoot. We will be outside enjoying nature so you can bring a lunch or if you need a break head to town and grab a lunch. We will be doing mostly hands on learning and shooting mixed with some lecture and demo time.
Course Items: The photo gear you have we will make it work. I like to have 2 camera bodies a 70mm to 200mm and a 500mm.
