Bird Photography Basics Workshop CT Audubon Society Coastal Center at Milford Point, Milford
Saturday, August 10th, 2019 from 8:15 am to 10:45 am
Leaders: Paul J. Fusco and Julian R. Hough
Do you like making images but don't know what basic equipment you need? Are you deterred because you think you need a "big" lens to make great images? Tired of wondering why your images don't look as great as the "professionals"?
Then join experienced and local wildlife photographers Paul Fusco and Julian Hough for a workshop that should immediately improve the quality of your images. This workshop will consist of a short indoor presentation followed by in-the-field instruction on how to apply some basic principles of photography.
You will learn:
. The basic equipment recommended for achieving the best results
. Basic, but incredibly effective, fieldcraft techniques
. What makes a great composition and how to achieve it
. Information about your subject and environment you need to know before you go into the field.
Skill Level: Basic to intermediate. This workshop is aimed at photographers that have a DSLR body (no bridge cameras or point and shoots) and use a 300mm lens or longer for bird photography. Participants should have a good working knowledge of their cameras and basic understanding of exposure. This workshop aims to build on participants' basic photography skills to improve their images rather than learn photography.
The workshop is free and open to COA members and non-members alike. It will be limited to 16 participants. Register now to reserve your place.

Their work has been published in a variety of magazines and books in North America and Europe.
