    The Elements of Bird Photography
    with Tina McManus
    (www.TinaMcManusPhotography.com)

    Bird photography can be rewarding, but it isn’t easy. In this program, Tina shares her tips for taking compelling bird images. This includes fieldcraft – where to find birds and how to approach them, what makes a dynamic wildlife photograph, and what gear you’ll need in order to capture them. Tina will also discuss the elements that make a winning nature photograph in competition. Anyone with the desire, knowledge, and patience can make beautiful photographs of our feathered friends.

    With Tina it has always been about the animals. Having grown up in Lake George in the Adirondacks as a “free-range” child, there was nothing better she liked to do than roam the nearby woods and streams. In 2011, she bought her first digital SLR, a Canon 7D. With a 70-200mm lens, birds and wildlife still looked like tiny dots. When Tamron came out with their 150-600mm lens around 2014, it finally gave her the means to start photographing wildlife and birds, and that’s when the fire really lit. She enjoys learning both fieldcraft – the art of finding, getting close to, and not disturbing the animal, and the technical side of capturing their story with a camera. Her preferred lens is now a Canon 500mm f4. She gets her greatest enjoyment when making images that capture the personality of her subject or that convey a sense of the subject and its habitat that makes the viewer care about nature and the need to preserve it.

    In 2015 Tina joined the Greater Lynn Photographic Society. In 2018 she finished first overall in Class A in the annual competition, and her photo won the Class A Image of the Year. Tina currently competes in the Masters Class.

    In this class the subject will be a small private plane. Our options for photographing after dark will be battery powered strobe lights and continuous light painting. We’ll explore both methods shooting tethered to an iPad to see results in real time.

    If you have ever wondered about using CamRanger and an iPad, don’t miss this class. And if you have heard about GoDox’s Pocket Lights and would like to see them in action, come along for the ride. As the night gets darker, we’ll experiment with a variety of small flash lights for light-painting the subject.

    Creating interesting images at night requires good pre-visualization skills, good working knowledge of your light sources, (including light volume and light color), and intent. But night photography also requires some luck and good amount of trial and error to achieve great results in the dark of the night.

    For more information on this program, contact Marsha Vander Mey, Mini Monday Chair, at 603-759-0062 or marsha@harperpoint.com.

    NOTE: For security reasons, all attendees will need to show their license or government issued ID when entering the airport. A list of all registered attendees will be provided to the security personnel at the airport prior to the event.

    The Art and Business of Pet Photography
    with Jen Hargrove, M.Photog.Cr., CPP
    (www.JenHargrovePhotography.com)

    Animals are a huge part of most peoples lives – from the dog of a little girl to the adults who only have 'furry kids’ – and usually are the biggest personality in the family.  Yet capturing those personalities is often more difficult than just a click of the shutter. 

    Jen Hargrove’s photographs are often defined by her simple compositions and authentic moments.  Join Jen as she demonstrates how she combines the personalities of her furry clients and image competition into her marketing, why she prefers to photograph animals 'off leash,’ and what products she suggests for the biggest sales.

    Jen entered the photography industry in September 2012 and opened her studio in Big Piney, Wyoming in 2014. Jen specializes in pet (mostly dog), high school seniors, and children photography.

    Jen has been a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) since January 2015 and is also a member of multiple PPA affiliates including Intermountain PPA, Colorado PPA, PhotoPro Network (Kentucky), Texas PPA, and Washington PPA. Jen serves on the Board of Directors of the Intermountain PPA as well as the Colorado PPA.

    Jen strongly believes in the importance of continuing education and the role print competition has along with education in growing and evolving as a photographer, as well as a business owner. She also believes that all photographers have a responsibility to help educate other photographers as well as clients.

    As a follow-up to this discussion, join Jen for a hands-on, full-day workshop on Thursday, October 3, and get the opportunity to watch and photograph a dog session from beginning to end. Space is limited, so register online today. Cost is $99 for the workshop.

    As a follow-up to the monthly meeting, join Jen in this hands-on workshop where you will get the opportunity to watch and photograph a dog session from beginning to end. Jen will begin with the initial consultation, that all-important “meet and greet” with your canine clients. Discover how she makes both humans and dogs comfortable while they get familiar with you and your studio. Also covered is camera and lens selections, lighting, background and props as you learn what to use and when. Explore how Jen photographs dogs for their humans and for print competition. Before the day is over, she will also discuss in person sales, products, pricing, marketing, and the post processing of images. Be sure to bring your camera, lenses, and a laptop with Photoshop installed.

    In 2015 Jen made decisions that would have a ripple effect through her business, art and personal life. She joined the Professional Photographers of America, competed in her first IPC, opened a storefront studio and began photographing pets. This journey has led to her obtaining her CPP, Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees, as well as numerous awards. More importantly, it has provided her the opportunity to speak and teach around the country, allowing her to share with her peers and make wonderful connections along the way.
