Story and photos by John Adamski

If photography is something that interests you, plan to attend a full day of digital photography workshops starting at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 16, at the Finger Lakes Museum & Aquarium in Branchport.

Many times I’ve been asked how I’m able to find and photograph such a wide variety of wild animals and birds, and capture images of creatures that some folks never see. In the 9:30 until noon session, I’ll be presenting a slide show entitled “Nature in a Nutshell; A Beginner’s Guide to Wildlife Photography.” The program is wildlife-specific and will provide insight into what to look for, where to look, and when to look there. I’ll also discuss camouflage clothing, photo blinds, and cover scents as well as the best cameras and lenses to consider for photographing various birds and animals.

At 1 p.m., professional and retired Kodak photographers Bob Oswald and Larry Heins will team up to present “The Nuts and Bolts of Photography,” which will include all aspects of digital photography including f-stops, shutter speeds, camera settings, and post production as well as landscape, macro, and telephoto lenses.

Each program is individually priced at $15 or you can sign up for both at a $10 discounted charge of $20. Reservations are required and you can sign up here:

Hope to see you there.
