Irene Sacilotto - A Passion for Wildlife Photography
The Stories Behind the Images
This talk is based on my more than 35 plus years’ experience photographing wildlife and covers the requirements, strategies, techniques, and equipment required to capture engaging images of animals in their natural habitat. Included is information on lighting and composition, plus locating, attracting, and approaching wildlife. The program is interwoven with some entertaining stories behind some of the images. Photos from my recent urban wildlife projects acquired during the COVID19 crisis have been newly added to the program. It provides ideas for photographers who are not traveling far from home at this time. Her website is http://www.ospreyphoto.com
