PEEC goes to the birds

-A A +A

Events: Center offers two bird-related classes

Spend an afternoon with local bird photographer Bob Walker and consider a variety of methods for photographing hummingbirds, from 3-5 p.m. Sept. 8.
Hummingbirds are colorful summer visitors that can be both challenging and rewarding photographic subjects. Because these little birds are adaptable, relatively fearless and easily attracted to nectar feeders, it’s possible to get nice photographs of them by temporarily turning a part of your backyard into an outdoor photo studio.
This workshop will start with a setup session showing how to prepare an outdoor studio, and will conclude with a field session in which participants can take some photos, either with their own cameras or using one that Walker will provide. Depending on the number of registrants, additional field sessions may be scheduled so that everyone who wants to take photos will get a chance to do so.
Equipment available for use at the workshop will include a camera, tripod, hummingbird feeder and camera flashes that are used for flash setups. Participants need only bring their own camera and/or CF or SDHC flash cards. Participant cameras should be able to have the shutter speed, aperture and ISO value set manually. It’s also best if the camera can focus manually and the lens should have a zoom lens with a telephoto setting equivalent to 200mm or more (6x or greater).
