This workshop is being presented by professional nature and wildlife photographer Kirby Flanagan. It's designed for people that want to take their bird photography to the next level. To gain the most from this workshop, you should understand the basics of shutter speed, ISO and f-stop and how to control each of them on your camera. Some previous experience with bird photography will be helpful.

We'll spend our time discussing and demonstrating composition, gesture, focusing, lighting, tripods and camera gear. Then we'll go out in the field and put your new knowledge to practical use. Bring your DSLR and longest lens for the field portion. Bring your camera manual too. Dress yourself and your gear for the weather.
