Our winter weather isn’t over yet and I am still enjoying the pristine beauty of snow falling in my yard as I write this. Even so, my thoughts are turning to that miracle of spring where the color pallet is less white and grey and a walk outdoors will show all the variations of the color green as everything comes back to life. And it will be music to my ears to hear the birds again, calling to mates, building nests and raising their young.
On Being a Birding Bird Photographer
Our next meeting on Wednesday, March 6, is just what I need. This presentation examines the expanding intersection between the birding hobby and bird photography. Photographer and birder Dr. Michelle Terrell will share from her own experiences tips for taking engaging bird photographs while being respectful of the birds, their habitat, and fellow birders and photographers.
Michelle Terrell is Vice President of the St. Croix Valley Camera Club and an avid outdoor photographer. As a native Minnesotan, she enjoys documenting our state’s wide variety of natural subjects from tiny woodland fungi to horizon-spanning northern lights. When not taking photos, Dr. Terrell is a professional archaeologist and historian.
Photography and the Law is Re-scheduled for Wednesday, March 20.
Our own knowledgeable Michael Waterman will give a presentation about photography and the law. Topics that will be covered include photographers’ rights, access restrictions, rights of privacy, model releases, ownership of images, copyright protections, and more. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm and as always the meeting is open to the public.
