Birds in Motion by Greg A. Cooper Traditional bird photography captures birds frozen in time. Although this technique crisply captures their stature, birds in motion capture the hidden beauty of these majestic creatures by using a slower shutter speed. This presentation showcases a portfolio of a work in progress. Techniques and equipment will be discussed, along with ample time for Q&A. This presentation will interest bird photographers as well as the casual birder that appreciates our feathered friends in their natural form. Greg A.
