Product details

This online class runs on Wednesday, November 4th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. The class is designed and taught by photographer Dave Strauss, providing lessons and best practices that he has perfected over the years. (NOTE: We have a two part version of this class as well that includes an image review and analysis of your photos with Dave in a small group setting. You can read about the two part version of this class by clicking here.)

Wildlife photography is good for you! (and it’s Outdoors and Socially Distanced!) Join avid wildlife photographer and frequent Looking Glass workshop instructor Dave Strauss on an exploration of the amazing possibilities in local wildlife photography. Dave will help you understand the wide range of creatures that we can find and photograph close to home in our stunning region. In a presentation suitable for photographers at all levels of experience, Dave will introduce strategies for finding wildlife, cameras and lenses, settings, lighting considerations, composition, and more. He’ll teach you macro techniques for capturing images of tiny charismatic creatures like insects and spiders, and also explain super-telephoto techniques suitable for birds, butterflies, dragonflies, coyotes, turtles, lizards, bobcats and so many other fascinating and beautiful animals.

The class will be presented via Zoom to a maximum of 16 participants. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with Dave and the other participants during this live seminar format. Toward the end of the segment, Dave will share some optional “homework” assignments to help you experience and absorb the techniques presented. Everyone is encouraged to try out the techniques.

ZOOM CONSIDERATIONS: For this online course, we’ll be meeting up from the comfort of our own homes using the Zoom video meeting application. Desktop or laptop computers with big screens work best. Even better, link your computer to your TV for the largest image possible. Using a tablet, iPad, or (horrors!) a cell phone will be frustrating. We’ll schedule a short Zoom check-in 15 minutes before the first class session to resolve any questions or problems with participants’ Zoom connections. This will help us get started the day of the class efficiently, so we can jump right into the learning (as opposed to troubleshooting!).
