Our speaker for the meeting will be Russ Burden, who will give a two part presentation titled, “The Serenity of the Serengeti.” The first part is an instructional Keynote slide show that shows the techniques Russ uses to capture his wildlife and scenic images while he is in Tanzania. Some of the concepts he will share are lens choice, flash, other photo gear, the quality of light, and how background choice impacts the quality of the photo. A few other topics include exhausting all possibilities, how to capture peak action, how to create bold silhouettes, timing, and more. Russ will show examples of photos that illustrate all of the above concepts. Part 2 is a 20 minute offering of Russ’s safari photos set to music. Part 2 immediately follows the instructional section.
