Indoor Program: Birds, Birders, and Bird Photographers: The Lines Have Blurred – Jim Zipp

November 10, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

See how photographing birds has changed over the years, from film based photography, to digital and now even iPhones! In today’s digital world it’s become a lot easier, with more and more birders photographing birds as well as watching them. Jim will show lots of photographs of birds we all love so much, recorded in U.S. locations ranging from here at home to Alaska, as well as hot spot birding destinations like Mexico and Costa Rica. There will be a few tips and suggestions along the way to help you take better images or simply help you enjoy watching our feathered friends. Jim has been photographing birds for more than 40 years. Thousands of his images have appeared in publications including National Geographic, Time, Audubon, Birdwatching, Wildbird, Discovery, Nature Conservancy and ABA’s Birding, as well as in numerous books, calendars and field guides. For more than 20 years he and his wife Carol have also owned and operated The Fat Robin Wild Bird Shop in Hamden.
