BCA Photo Group: “Waterscapes and Wonders from the Woods” by Kathryn Dow
February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The BCA Photo Group Technical Series welcomes Kathryn Dow, a long-time birder, wildlife photographer and workshop leader, speaking on “Waterscapes and Wonders from the Woods.” She has instructed classroom and field workshops (annual Festival of the Cranes in NM, Bosque Del Apache NWR and Florida’s Space Coast). She is also a Field Naturalist for Maven, an optics company (https://kathryndow.photoshelter.com).
Dow will discuss field shooting techniques, equipment, camera settings and processing. Highlights of her talk include: finding and approaching subjects, reading the light, composition (framing, mood, habitat to include with a subject, image capture angles), focus point selection on still and moving subjects, manual exposure, and helpful histogram settings.
Doors open at 6:30 for socializing and image sharing (Elm Street entrance). The BCA is supported in part through a grant from the Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
