executed black and white images have such enduring appeal. But shooting

Have you ever watched birds fly, swoop, eat, fight, court, or play out any of their myriad of amazing behaviors and said to yourself, "I wish I could capture this moment?" Birds provide a fascinating and inspiring subject to the photographer, and also a hugely challenging one. Artful bird photography is inspired by and celebrates our fascination with birds from our own backyards to vast natural expanses. It is a way of seeing birds and striving to photograph them in ways that capture our imagination.
Professional nature photographer Mary Louise Ravese partners with award-winning bird photographer Alan Clark to co-teach this workshop. They offer lots of practical tips and guidance in the field and classroom.
In this workshop, participants will learn the finer points about bird photography from planning to equipment and shooting techniques. In addition, we will address how to capture bird images that go beyond a documentary approach, to capturing birds in an artistic manner that fills our imagination - a style worthy of hanging on your wall and sharing with others. The workshop includes hands-on photo shoots at Sylvan Heights Bird Park, a unique 18-acre facility featuring walk-through aviaries that give an up-close view of a variety of birds from around the world, ranging from waterfowl to parrots, flamingos, exotic birds and more! It is the largest bird park in North America and the largest waterfowl park in the world. During the workshop we will have "photo pass" access which allows key access to specially designed ports in the aviary fencing that allows your lens to pass through for unobstructed photographs of the birds. Additionally, there will be over 10 hours of live, interactive online video conference-based sessions to cover lecture content before and after the in-person photo shoot. A few weeks after our hands-on session, we will have an optional follow-up webinar when class participants can receive feedback on a selection of their workshop images. Each of the 2 hr online sessions will be scheduled based on registered participant availability and will be recorded so they can be watched offline if 100% attendance isn't feasible.
