This has become a landmark event for Northern Utah, bringing visitors from throughout the nation and around the world! I'll be running two photo events for the Bird Festival as well as my photo booth:
A. Thursday, May 17, 8-12 a.m.: Photography Tour of Farmington Bay
I'll give tips on camera settings, how to shoot hand-held, with a tripod or from the car as well as other tips and techniques. Then we'll practice those points "in the wild" as I lead you along the main road, stopping at likely spots for photographing birds. As we move along I'll provide more equipment tips and personal help for getting the best pictures possible in nearly any conditions.
Cost is only $20. Sign up soon at The Bird Festival Page. Then, on May 17 before 8 a.m. bring your camera, lens, tripod etc. and meet at Davis County Legacy Events Center 151 S. 1100 W. Farmington UT 84025
B. Saturday, May 19, 8-9 a.m.: Photo seminar
This will be an introduction to photography with an emphasis on bird photos. I'll cover some theory and the basic settings to let you control the camera. You'll get tips for shooting birds as well as how to shoot like an artist. No cost, at the Event Center.
C. Friday & Saturday, May 18 & 19, Vendor Booth
Then, on Friday and Saturday I'll have my booth ready for picture and card sales ... or just come by and chat, enjoy the pictures and watch the rolling bird video I'll have.
