Seminar: Darel Hess on Wildflower Photography

February 15, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A person does not have to be an expert photographer to take good photographs of plants. Obviously the more one knows about the equipment and what makes a good photo, the higher the percentage of the pictures taken will turn out good.

Two main points of view to be discussed are: (1) photographing for personal/shared enjoyment and (2) documentation of species characteristics. This presentation will cover some of the basics of equipment and its use and limitations, followed by a discussion of some things to avoid in composing the image to be recorded.

Darel Hess has been interested in nature photography as a hobby for about 60 years. His involvement increased to a much higher level in about 1990 when he also became interested in learning more about plant photography and identification. His current primary equipment consists of a digital SLR camera (Nikon D750), macro lens (Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm), and a stable tripod.

Darel is also an active member and former treasurer of TNPS.
