If you’ve ever been interested in getting into wildlife photography, the Finger Lakes Museum and Aquarium is holding a full day of workshops on Saturday June 16.
John Adamski, a wildlife photographer and outdoor writer for 40 years, will teach “Nature in a Nutshell; A Beginner’s Guide to Wildlife Photography,” an in-depth presentation that will provide insight into what to look for in wildlife photography, where to look, and when to look. He will discuss camouflage clothing, photo blinds, cover scents, as well as the best cameras and lenses to consider for photographing various birds and animals. Adamski is a 4-time award winning member of the New York State Outdoor Writers Association. His photographs of animals and landscapes from all over North America can be found regularly in Life in the Finger Lakes Magazine, as well as his website: www.johnadamskiphotography.com.
Bob Oswald, an avid outdoor and wildlife photographer, and Larry Heins, a self-taught landscape, nature, and wildlife photographer, will team up to teach “The Nut and Bolts of Photography.” The afternoon session will begin with a short a short presentation on some digital photography basics (including f-stops, shutter speeds, camera settings, postproduction, landscape, macro, and telephoto lenses). Then, they will lead a guided hands-on photography experience outside on the beautiful FLM&A campus, where they will not only help attendees make better images but will also help them find the “wild critters” to photograph.
The registration fee for this full day of wildlife photography classes is $20, or $15 to attend just one session (morning or afternoon).
