Camera trap photography lets people see wildlife that would otherwise be out of sight, out of mind. Join us for an in-depth discussion with Johanna Turner about motion-activated wildlife photography. In this class, you will learn about the commercially available and DIY camera trap systems, exposure settings for wildlife portraiture vs environmental scenes, site selection and animal behavior, and ethical considerations.
You’ll be able to look at and handle different camera housings and trigger systems to see which will work best for you. Johanna will show the progression of several setups from initial installation through the final shots with stories of surprises along the way.
Johanna looks forward to talking with you about the use of this technology as an important tool for wildlife conservation.
