Beginning with a photo slideshow featuring local birds, Brady will discuss locations and tips for getting that close up shot. He will cover use of camera settings, lenses and strategies for getting close, with an emphasis on the ethical treatment of wildlife. Brady will cover the use of light and ways to improve composition.

Hoping to boost your photo power, Brady will share factors that give images, impact and inspiration through his stunning photography. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn tricks and fundamentals that could change the way you shoot. Bring your camera for an after-event mingle with other aspiring and experienced photographers.
