Southwest Arizona Field Workshop
Hummingbird and Other Bird Photography
October 5-8, 2016
Enjoy one of the country's hottest birding areas while the birds are still migrating, but after the crowds have left, in order to get good, quiet views of the amazing hummingbirds and other birds.
Stay at the beautiful Casa de San Pedro, which was built as a destination lodge for birders. At the B&B, you will enjoy a hearty breakfast and several other meals, afternoon pie, and classroom instruction. Take morning trips to local birding areas. Evening photography will typically take place on the B&B's 10 acres with its many bird and hummingbird feeders, or on the adjacent San Pedro River and Riparian National Conservation Area. You will have ample opportunity for individual instruction.
This workshop will focus on photographing birds in various settings, including instruction on in-flight birds. You will be photographing birds in natural setting or on feeders. Learn to respond and record what you encounter. Learn to set up your yard for photography.
You will also learn about lighting, backgrounds, and camera setups for different settings.
This special workshop will take you on a journey from the creation of your image in the field to the finalizing of your image using some of the best software. You will receive morning and evening field instruction, as well as afternoon classroom sessions packed with a variety of information and friendly, helpful critiques.
