This opening teaching presentation for February will hopefully make us think and dream of warmer weather. Our speaker comes to us from Rhode Island and will teach you all you need to know to try your hand at shooting, Birds in Flight. Do you want to take photos of birds flying, soaring, and running? Our speaker will explain and go over all the ins and outs of that. The presentation includes challenges in flight photography, equipment choices and techniques used. Numerous examples of bird flight images in various light conditions, as well as some of the locations that offer great flight photography opportunities will be presented and discussed
