Elements of Bird Photography
presented by Tom Spine
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 7pm to 9pm
SOPHA, Manchester, NH
In this program, Tom Spine will give an introduction to the world of bird photography. After a short discussion of the ethics of birding, Tom will cover aspects of necessary equipment, approaches to exposure and other camera settings, shooting techniques, and elements of composition. Tom will also show how you can create compelling bird photographs in your own backyard, and provide an overview of local birding hotspots — and some not so local hotspots too. Throughout the program Tom will illustrate many of the topics with his own photographs.
