Course Description

The sky is literally the limit in this online workshop intended to engage your passion for photographing birds and push your creativity to expand your vision. Traditional bird photography can be very repetitive and at times challenging to break out of the box. Join renown wildlife and fine-art photographer Kristi Odom for this new workshop designed to push the boundaries of bird photography enabling you to create works of art.

Kristi starts by reviewing and demonstrating creative camera techniques that bring motion, narrative, colors, pattern, and shape into your images. A critical outcome of perfecting these techniques is to make those looking at our images feel an emotion. Evocative photographs are powerful and stand the test of time, and this is what we strive for in our images of birds.

The important next step in this workshop is to dig deep into learning and experimenting with processing techniques using Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop that enable you fly even higher. These simple techniques can help elevate your work and push your own creativity.

Kristi gives assignments at the end of each class and then reviews selected images during the next session. The goal of this five-session workshop is to create multiple pieces of art that you are proud to exhibit, or sell, or hang on your walls.

Get ready for this journey into the sky and into our imaginations!
