DOWN AND DIRTY WITH DOUG PEDWELL

leave a comment »

Dougie twoSince retiring from teaching Doug Pedwell has indulged his lifelong passions of nature study, photography and travel. He can often be found wandering the back roads of Grey and Bruce Counties, camera in hand, searching for that perfect shot of flora, fauna, birds and landforms. You will definitely feel that a day with Doug in the field is informative, rewarding and a whole lot of fun. A member of the Bruce Birding Club, the Saugeen Shores Camera Club and a past president of The Friends of MacGregor, Doug has also participated in the Huron Fringe Birding Festival as an event leader and committee member for quite a few years now. Doug will be leading three events at this year’s Festival. Here is his description of what he expects to accomplish on Down & Dirty – Wildflower Photography (B4).

Down and dirty is just what it means.

Down&DIrty

I’ll take you along the Old Shore Road trail in MacGregor Point Park. As you amble along the way I’ll stop and explain various techniques to use in shooting photographs of wildflowers. You can expect to be lying on the ground trying to get pictures at the flowers at their level.

D&DRed

Make sure you have your camera’s manual with you, as you may want to try different settings.  Discussions about aperture, shooting speeds, focal length will be part of the event.

As with most photography trips there is a theme, but we take advantage of whatever Mother Nature sends our way.
