Field Trip: Warblers and other Songbirds Photography

Warblers and other Songbirds
Photography Field Trip

Leader: Terry Boswell
Date: Saturday, May 12, 2018
Time: 8am to noonish
Location: Meet at the front gate at 8am
Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park
4775 St. Margaret’s Bay Road
Upper Tantallon

The park does not open until May 14th so we will meet at the gate. Parking is limited at the gate so you may need to park on the side of the main road with all tires off the pavement to avoid a ticket. If, by chance, the park opens earlier, follow the road to a parking lot on the left next to a grassy area with picnic tables. It is 1km from the gate to the park and approximately 1.5km loop around the park. The total distance, with a few side trails, will be about 5km. The main trails are easy but some may be muddy.

Recommended:

  • appropriate footwear for wet trails
  • rain gear unless, of course, there is 0% chance of rain
  • water, snacks/lunch
  • longest lens you can carry – at least 200mm but more is better
  • binoculars, if you have them
  • PGNS Field Trip Waiver Form

Warblers and songbirds are not always easy to photograph as they rarely sit still. Hopefully, the leaves will not be fully out, allowing us better views of the birds. There is no rain date. If significant rain is forecast for the 12th, an email will be sent out on the 11th to cancel.

Please contact me if you have questions.

Cheers.

Beyond Technique: Artistry, Creativity, Meaning and Personal Style
A Presentation by Kas Stone

You’ve been photographing for a while. You have all the gear. You are comfortable with camera technique and rules of composition. You’ve mastered basic photo editing at the computer. And you can put it all together to make good images most of the time. But you feel that you are missing something; you think there must be more.

Join professional photographic artist Kas Stone for a journey Beyond Technique. This exploration of artistry, creativity, meaning and personal style will challenge you to dig deeper – and reward you with a fresh perspective that will help you make better images than ever before.

Kas Stone is based in Dublin Shore, Lunenburg County, where she runs a studio gallery and leads workshops in digital imaging. She is active in the photographic community as a presenter and competition judge. Her portfolio includes an extensive list of publications, exhibitions and national awards, with two wilderness guidebooks published by The Boston Mills Press and a feature profile in Outdoor Photography Canada magazine.
