NJ Audubon Digital Photography Workshop 2: Photographic Composition

Bernardsville, NJ 07924 United States

Instructors: Phil Witt, Dave DesRochers, and Jack Moskowitz, Associate Naturalists Workshop 2 will focus on composition--that is, capturing the best image.  The workshop will also begin covering the basics of digital editing. Although the workshop will demonstrate digital editing using PhotoShop, most of the editing techniques can be implemented in other digital editing programs.  The workshop will be organized around three nature photography principles—light, composition, and moment.  All composition and editing techniques, from the initial lens choice to the image capture technique to PhotoShop editing, will be geared towards achieving an image that captures those three elements well.  Although we will stress getting the best image capture initially, sometimes Mother Nature needs a little help in the digital darkroom, so we will cover basic digital editing methods that can improve the image.  The workshop will review examples from a variety of subject types within nature photography, ranging from birds to insects to landscapes.  Participants will be encouraged to submit their own images for in-class editing. One person per ticket. Ticket sale ends on 11/4 at 5:00 PM. COST: $12 members, $25 nonmembers. Interested in becoming a member?

SO.MANY.SEABIRDS

November 5 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join CMBO staff and naturalists for an afternoon of scoters, gannets, loons, grebes, cormorants, jaegers, and more! The Fall migration of seabirds along the South Jersey coast is fascinating, inspiring, and sometimes overwhelming, as hundreds of thousands head south to wintering grounds. Join us for an afternoon of scoters, gannets, loons, grebes, cormorants, jaegers, and more – a chance to learn about and appreciate these amazing movements. We’ll discuss plumage, flight style, seasonality and other aspects that affect migration. We’ll concentrate our efforts around Stone Harbor and Avalon – taking it all in. Because of the inherent dynamic nature of birding, we do not pre-set an exact itinerary but will visit those parts of Cape May County that regularly hold good numbers of seabirds during November. Final location decisions will be made by the leader based on local knowledge and conditions at the time. PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED COST: $15 members, $20 nonmembers. Interested in becoming a member?
