Rob's Field Workshops & Photo Seminars


THURS 1 - 2:30 P.M.

Modern Technology for Nature Photography

Photographers were capturing the beauty of nature and wildlife long before the advent of digital cameras. Sure, we don’t NEED all of the modern bells and whistles to create beautiful images, but there are a few tools that have hit the market in the past few years that make our jobs a whole lot easier! Join Olympus Educator Rob Knight to explore how features and functions of today’s cameras can help you capture your vision more efficiently than ever. Cameras have much more to offer the nature photographer than just higher frame rates. These days you can capture the shot BEFORE the shot, create detailed high-resolution images, capture unique long exposures, and much more right inside the camera. Find out how you can make the most of whatever system you’re using. Put the adage, “Work smarter, not harder” to use in your photography!
