There is no better time to experience the vibrant life of the wetlands than at dawn. And no better time to enjoy sandhill cranes as they begin their day with song and dance. Join a small and hearty group led by local craniac photographer, Lon (LA) Yarbrough, on this amazing photo opportunity. As the sun rises you will experiment with high ISOs, long shutter speeds and wide open apertures to capture images not obtainable at any other time. Details and techniques are available at www.NaturalMedia.us/dawn.htm. Participants will be notified of location a few days before the shoot by phone or e-mail
