All are invited, free of charge. Public transportation users: This location is a half-mile walk from the Manhasset LIRR station. Scott Joshua Dere will present “Wild Bird Photography”. Scott Joshua Dere will discuss how to make the sharpest images possible while photographing birds in the wild using super telephoto lenses. Scott will teach a live presentation of techniques on his own equipment while giving a slide show presentation on his best Birding images. He will review etiquette in the field, proper clothing, and how to travel with all the necessary equipment as well as the most important camera settings for this type of photography. Tips will be given on how to approach birds of prey and how to compose the best image of them in a given scene. By the end Scott will reveal how to make a finished, refined piece of artwork by using proper exposures and post processing methods to obtain the perfect finished image. Scott has been using a camera since he was 5 years old. At just 13 years old, Scott landed his first photography job as an assistant for New York Photo Studio. For the next 17 years, Scott worked with several professional studios and found many different techniques along the way. During this time Scott attended college at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and received a BFA in the Fine Arts of Photography. He also has a Master of Photography medal from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Scott is also a member of the American Society of Photographers (ASP). Scott currently has his own successful professional studio in NY and is the current president of the Professional Photographers of Greater New York (PPGNY). For the last 10 years, Scott has produced many published works for his project “The Elements of Nature” by traveling in between weekend events and work all season long to create some of the most amazing nature images today.
