#SalemOR Audubon presents Steve Dimock, nature photographer, with tips at SPL Nov. 18

Photography for Twitchers or My Favorite Tricks for Better Bird Images with Steve Dimock

Chapter Meeting – Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Salem Library, 585 Liberty Street SE, Salem – Loucks Auditorium – 7:00 PM

Steve Dimock of Bandon, Oregon is presenting a fascinating and informative talk about bird photography and birding in Bandon by taking a virtual tour of the area. He’ll be discussing how he approached each, and why and what he may find there. Find out why closer is better, flight photos are best, and why a bird in the bush may sing but a bird in the camera is forever.

Steve began photography as a young boy when his father would turn him loose on the world with a twin lens reflex camera. Later Steve’s father would take him into the dark room and develop the film and see what young Steve had created. Over the years Steve has used a wide range of equipment from that early twin lens camera to large format to 35mm and now digital cameras. His initial focus was on landscapes but over the years an increasing amount of his work has focused on wildlife and birds in particular. Steve’s search for cooperative subjects has taken him from Bandon to Portland to Vancouver BC and from Klamath Falls to Jacksonville, Florida. One of the wonderful things about bird photography is that there are wonderful subjects in every part of the world.
