Workshop Description: In this workshop, we will learn basic techniques for creating beautiful bird images. In-field discussion and practice will touch on finding locations, reading the light, common camera settings, and composition considerations as well as bird behavior. We will go more in-depth on specific techniques for the various types of birds that can be found in the environments present in the area.
Bender is happiest in the field and passionate about sharing unique animals and environments from around the world in hopes of connecting people to the planet through imagery. She believes that connection is key to promoting environmental awareness and protecting vulnerable species and their habitats.
Currently, based out of Las Vegas, she travels the Southwest in an RV with her two dogs while taking periodic international trips. When she isn’t leading tours or teaching classes, she writes location guides and blogs about her adventures on her website while sharing images on Instagram and Facebook.
