This hands-on, online series is designed to hone your photography skills in the context of capturing images of beautiful, and sometimes elusive, birds. We will explore documentary, abstract, color, and black and white image-making just in time to capture the migrants returning to our fields and seashore. Appropriate for all skill levels; instructor will individualize lessons based on the skill set of each participant.
Each week will include a two-hour online classroom session, weekly assignments to practice skills and strategies covered that week, and the sharing of three images from each assignment with the group for constructive feedback and reflection.
The instructor will use student work to demonstrate basic post-processing techniques, including integration of the digital flow including processing and editing images using a raw converter such as Adobe Lightroom for publishing or printing.
DSLR and Mirrorless cameras with full auto and manual functions and wide, telephoto, and close focus capabilities are ideal for this class. While all levels of skill are accepted in this class, all students need to be familiar with their camera functions.
In addition to 6 hours of online instruction, each student will receive one hour of individual instruction via email, phone, video chat, or in-person field instruction (adhering to current COVID safety requirements).
