Bird Photography with the Nikon System
Join me in South Florida to immerse yourself in the art of bird photography using Nikon cameras, including the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera. Each day, we will download and process our images together as a group, receive critiques, and learn my end to end workflow for creating the best possible images using Adobe Lightroom Classic (or ACR), Photoshop, and Topaz AI plug-ins.
This exclusive workshop is limited to 8 participants for a personalized experience and maximum instructor access. Because of the small group size, I'm able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.
We’ll be photographing at several can’t-miss locations, including the Wakodahatchee Wetlands and Green Cay Wetlands, where you can expect to photograph dozens of bird species from easily accesible open boardwalks.
