Shorebird Photography at East Beach
Field Trip

April 17 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am
  • This event has passed.

Photographing shorebirds is fun and challenging as they are almost always in motion. We will seek out the birds on East Beach or wherever they may be hiding, to capture the action.  We may also head to the boat dock area behind the Strand to get close-up shots of Pelicans and other birds as they wait for the shrimp boats to come into port.

Techniques that will be used include fast and slow shutter speeds for birds in flight and low level shots.  We will also focus on getting the proper exposure using your camera’s histogram.

Equipment Needed: Digital SLR camera with a 300mm lens or greater, tripod, camera bag or back pack to keep gear organized in the vehicle. Comfortable shoes or boots for walking in the sand are recommended.
