Topic: Techniques for Capturing Wildlife Images

MONEP member, Jane Palmer, will be back with us as a presenter in September, sharing information and her images during her presentation Techniques for Capturing Wildlife Images. Jane will emphasize birds and other wildlife subjects as well.

Jane is an award-winning landscape and underwater photographer. She started her photography adventure in high school and picked it back up again when her daughter left for college. A lifelong love of nature and animals led her to spend more time outdoors with her camera, and she soon developed a passion for nature photography. After learning to scuba dive, it seemed only natural to take a camera underwater! Jane now travels the world capturing the magic of the underwater world with her camera. Jane’s work can be seen on her website janepalmerphotography.com. In addition, Jane is a contributing author on Visual Wilderness, writing articles that are seen by thousands of photographers. Jane shares her enthusiasm for photography with her students, whether in the classroom teaching post processing, in the field talking about light and composition from behind the camera, or working side by side during a dive to teach underwater photo skills.
