Topic: "Iceland and South Texas with Alan Murphy and Greg Downing" with Richard Rhudy
Description: In February of 2017 and July of 2018 Roberta and I attended two workshops conducted by Alan Murphy and Greg Downing who are amazing photographers and great teachers. Aside from showing some of my favorite images from these two trips, I will describe some of the methods they used to help assure that we were able to achieve the best photographs possible. Alan focuses solely on birds and has developed an interesting technique for capturing small birds in flight. As part of the presentation, I will illustrate this technique. These were two of the best workshops that I have attended. The target birds for the Texas workshop included the Green Jay, Crested Caracara, and the Pyrrhuloxia while the Iceland trip was focused primarily on the Atlantic Puffin.
