An illustrated evening talk by wildlife photographer Jim Almond
Apart from my trusty pair of binoculars and scope, I always carry my camera with me on my birding travels throughout the UK. This talk takes a look at what's involved in bird photography, numerous localities and of course, plenty of interesting birds! Bird groups should not be put off by the title as the bulk of the talk deals with good birds, using these as a foil to describe some of the principles behind successful photography (fieldcraft etc). The use of the camera to create artistic images - making the most of the conditions (e.g. low light and rain) Sections on garden birds, landscapes and habitats add to the overall appeal plus of course birds in flight and in unusual poses! Using my quest for better and better images as a theme, the talk will also feature some of my most memorable birding moments - a visual birding extravaganza!
