Bird Photography 2021
March 24, 2021
7:30 PM on Zoom
Tom Warren
A simplified approach to capturing birds in action. 
Learn how to optimize your DSLR – digital single lens reflex – camera settings. 
A former photojournalist, Tom has placed 4 photos in Audubon’s Top 100 Photo Awards.
In the realm of bird photography, technology has played a huge role in helping us to achieve sharper images. 
But as rewarding as it is to be able to capture a nice photo of a bird in flight, it can seem somewhat daunting to learn about the many equipment options and settings needed.
Tom will talk about the latest options for adding photography to your birding arsenal and will also share some tips that he has found to be helpful in the field. This presentation will have an emphasis on using “DSLRS” with longer yet portable lenses but “mirrorless” and other more compact options will be presented too.
We hope you can join us for this virtual event and, hopefully, you’ll come away ready to photograph some beautiful birds this spring!
