“Nature Photography” by Mike Trahan

April 20, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

Christian Church of Arlington Heights, 333 W Thomas St, Arlington Heights, IL 60004, USA


Do you wonder if you can take nature photos such as you’ve seen done by others? Do you want to improve your shots further?  You can!

But where do you start and how do you do it? We’ll walk through the various genres of nature photography and give you practical suggestions on technique, settings, equipment, plus when to go out.

Different parts of our session should be worthwhile to the beginning, intermediate and advanced photographer. We won’t just be showing pretty pictures. This will be a high content, practical session although it still will be an overview given the time we’ll have. We’ll discuss:

·        Birds
·        Wildlife
·        Landscapes
·        Flowers
·        …and Bugs
When you get down to it, photography is a great excuse to get out and enjoy nature which then enriches your life. So join us on May 4th for a special presentation by Mike Trahan.
