DOS May Meeting: “Crash Course in Wildlife Photography” by Josh Ward

May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm UTC+0

Program Description:
Have you ever looked at the work of the famous National Geographic photographers and wondered just how on Earth they manage to do what they do? Well, I don’t claim to be NatGeo caliber, but in this program we will take a look at all the general themes, tips, and tricks of being a wildlife photographer. We will jump into a rapid crash course about wildlife photography, covering the ways to find and observe wildlife, techniques for photography, and how to use camera settings properly. Photography is a wonderful way to record what you might come across when you’re outdoors, and it’s far easier to get into it than you might think!

Josh is currently a rising senior in Wildlife Conservation at Virginia Tech. He has been obsessed with the natural world since he could first walk and talk — everything from birds to bugs and frogs to bats. He has become an avid birder, herper, and all-around naturalist in the past several years Five years ago he began his path into the world of photography and hasn’t looked back since. He plans on pursuing a career in either writing about his experiences in nature or becoming a wildlife photographer full time.

The meeting is held online via Zoom software.
