Jenny Hibbert: talk on the Essentials of a Wildlife Photographer
This evening our guest was Jenny Hibbert who gave a talk on her experiences of being a Wildlife photographer. Through her photographs she explained the highs and lows of being a Wildlife photographer.
Jenny's favourite position when possible for taking wildlife photos is to lay on the grass, so that she can be able to take more engaging photos instead of taking them standing up! She has even laid in the snow.
Jenny explained that there were certain exceptions when she was photographing animals such as bears, although she did get an unexpected shot of a bear that was a bit too close to comfort!
Jenny had some great shots of water birds, especially the Pelicans. She waited until she could find the right picture, which sometimes was hours.
Jenny gave information on the camera settings she used for taking her wildlife photos and stated that the best time to take wildlife photos was about Dawn or Dusk.
Jenny has won many rewards for her wildlife photography and seeing her work made a very entertaining evening.
Next week our club will be critiquing images from East Sutherland Camera Club and they will be critiquing our images.
