If you’d like to take better bird photos, begin by discovering the power in your camera’s buttons, dials and menus. Although most of my photography seminars are full this spring, I’m running an open introductory session on Friday, March 1, from 6:30-8:30PM at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier. The fee is $20 ($15 for NBNC members).
This is a general session on some essential photography topics (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, metering, exposure compensation and a few other things) — and how to command them all on your camera. But I’ll also “focus” a portion of the session on birds and other wildlife photography, particularly for folks using point-and-shoots. Here’s a sampling of my my own point-and-shoot bird photography: https://bryanpfeiffer.com/photography/photography-birds/point-and-shoot-birds/ You can get shots like these with a mega-zoom, decent light, and some basic skills (birding and photographic).
There’s no need to register for this workshop. Just charge your battery, bring your fee (and stuff for taking notes), and show up at North Branch Nature Center on March 1 with your camera. (I’ll have handouts.)
