This session is new to FeatherFest; be sure to check it out!
Join Ruth Hoyt for this indoor session, where she presents her program and demonstrates techniques for setting up an outdoor photo studio specifically for bird photography.
She shares some of the tips and techniques she uses when consulting with ranch owners who want to build photo blinds for photography — what we want (photographs) and what the subjects need (food, water, shelter, and a place to rear their young).
Her slide show demonstrates how she attracts a variety of species to a photo area and prepares photographers for some specialty birds and surprise visitors, as well as details she includes in photo areas, such as water sources, foods to offer, and a key ingredient — having fun!
Suggested Equipment: this is an indoor program, so no special equipment is needed. Ruth provides a handout, so you don’t even need to bring a notebook for taking notes.
