Join Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department photographer Tom Rogers for a workshop on wildlife and nature photography, hosted by Audubon Vermont. The workshop is geared for beginners who want to get the basics of wildlife photography.
The workshop will begin with a brief presentation on the basics of proper exposure, depth of field, and use of camera equipment, followed by a field session at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington. Debbie Archer from Audubon Vermont will be on hand to help find wildlife and to provide a naturalist’s prospective. Participants should bring their own camera equipment, including a tripod and binoculars if they own them. The event will be limited to 12 participants.
Tom Rogers is a trained wildlife biologist and photographer and has photographed in 29 countries.
“Our abundant wildlife is one aspect of Vermont’s special landscape. This workshop offers a chance to learn how to frame and capture wildlife through the lens of a camera,” said Rogers. “From a songbird surrounded by spring blossoms to a winding mountain stream, we’ll review the basics to taking beautiful wildlife and outdoor images.”
“Wildlife and nature photography can present some of the most challenging conditions for a photographer, between difficult weather conditions and wildlife that never holds still,” said Rogers. “But with an understanding of a few basic techniques, along with some patience and luck, the results can be stunning.”
We will be providing light refreshments, and participants are encouraged to bring dinner with them. The cost of the workshop is $15 for members ($20 non-members), which goes to support Audubon Vermont, along with a suggested purchase of a Vermont Habitat Stamp from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
