Kevin Loughlin

Kevin Loughlin was raised to appreciate nature while exploring the woodlands of Pennsylvania. At age six, during a family trip through the American West, Kevin became fascinated with photography as well seeing new and different birds throughout North America. Instilled with a love for travel and seeking new, exciting destinations he felt a desire to share his experiences with others and in 1993 he created Wildside Nature Tours.

Kevin’s photographs and articles have appeared in publications such as Nature Photographer, WildBird, Audubon and Birding and Living Bird Magazines, as well as the many natural history books including more than a dozen in the recent "Peterson's Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean." His latest project in progress is a book about the Galapagos Islands.

So many photos of birds are just that, a photo of a bird. The rules of exposure and composition are important but breaking them ‘properly’ can add the wow factor your images desire! Take your bird photography to the next level and create artistic compositions by paying attention to light, detail and especially backgrounds.

Light – Shadow - Background

The art of photography is based upon light and shadow. Having a proper understanding of exposure will help you create better images of any subject and take your photography to the next level!

What lies behind your subject can make or break your final image. Learning to pay attention to all elements in your image, especially the background, will help you get better exposures and compositions. We will discuss using different lenses and depth of focus and exposure to isolate your subject or show it in its environment.
