Are you ready to take your nature photography to the next level? Using bird photography as an example, we’ll talk about what makes a basic, good quality, bird photograph and then how to elevate your bird or other nature images to the next level. We will touch on both technical and compositional techniques, as well as expanding our awareness of outside factors such as light, behavior, pose, weather, and environment that can elevate an image to something “more.”

I do not plan to delve into the subjective and semantic rabbit hole of what is “art” and what is not, but instead talk about how to create images with increased creativity and impact. Images that move beyond a more documentary or “field guide” shot. Whether you shoot birds, or other nature subjects, or even people, the ideas and techniques we will explore in this talk can apply to your particular type of photography.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Have you ever been asked to prepare a video of your still photos for a photo montage for a wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or your kid’s school team? This can be a daunting task - if you don’t know how to begin. But knowing your tools, and knowing your vision, you can make fast and easy wonderful short or long videos. This talk will help you take your photography and short video clips from your DSLR or cellphone and make effective presentations. We will cover:

How to Plan a presentation
How to organize your assets BEFORE you start your video presentation
Kinds of assets needed
Where to get video clips if not your own (Adobe Stock, Pond5 etc)
How to set up the assets for optimal use
Transitions and special effects
Audio Choice and use
Legal issues
and putting it all together

We will cover 4 different software platforms: PowerPoint, iMovie, FotoMagico and Final Cut Pro.
