TOPIC: “Thinking Like A Photographer: Getting the Most Out of Your Bird and Nature Photography”
We all want to capture great nature images, but how do you do that? Too often people settle for little bird specks in the center of their picture frame. The key is learning how to think like a photographer! In this presentation, Sean will talk about how to think like a photographer using anticipation, strategy, and technique to get images that tell a story, or have that “something extra.” Sean’s tips and techniques should benefit photographers of every level.
SESSION: Saturday, February 23 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
LOCATION: The University of Texas Marine Science Institute
