(13) Photographing Wild Birds with Jim Dunn , November 7, 2021

Jim Dunn was the Festival’s 2015-featured photographer and one of the Festival’s most popular presenters.  He says, “Birds in the wild are an intriguing subject for any photographer.  Making beautiful photographs of wild birds places requirements on the photographer and his or her equipment that are very different.“  Join Jim for a morning foray at the Turner Road Vintners to discuss equipment options for wild bird photography, and learn some of the key skills and techniques to get good photographs.  This is only the fifth time photographers have had the chance to access this great bird habitat first thing in the morning.
