Birding Photography Workshop

The workshop will be held on Saturday, April 13th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area located at 13229 West State Route 2, Oak Harbor 43449.

The workshop is free of charge but pre-registration is required by April 12, as space is limited.  To register, contact Meredith Gilbert at 419-429-8359.

Division of Wildlife photographers Tim Daniel and Nina Harfmann will cover topics such as camera types and settings, finding your photography target and capturing a clear and interesting photo. Participants will then have the opportunity to test out their new skills in Magee Marsh’s extensive bird habitat.

Participants are encouraged to bring camera equipment including a tri or monopod, binoculars, sturdy walking shoes, and insect repellent. A large portion of the workshop will be held outdoors, and participants should dress for the weather.
