Do you enjoy watching birds? Do you have a photography habit? Do you have trouble combining the two together? The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is here to help. They are hosting an online class with a top nature photographer. He will offer tips and hints to take better bird pictures.

What Is Happening?

MDC is hosting a class titled “Nature Art: Protecting Birds with Photography.” One of Missouri’s top nature photographers, Noppadol Paothong, will lead the class by telling stories and offering practical photographic tips to get the best images.

People can enjoy talking about photography with Paothong. He has won a number of awards during his career as an MDC photographer and, before that, as a newspaper photographer. His stories and inspiring photography instill a deep sense of wonder in Missouri’s birds, in particular, and the state’s outdoor world in general.

This program is co-sponsored by MDC and the Greater Ozarks Audubon Society.

When Is This Class?

The class is on Thursday, May 16, between 6:15 and 7:15 p.m. It is free, but registration is required. You can register here.

Who Can Attend?

This free program is open for ages 12 and up.

Where Is The Class?

This class will be held at MDC’s Springfield Conservation Nature Center, located in southeast Springfield at 4601 S. Nature Center Way.

Birds provide a year-round source of nature photos. Using the proper techniques may turn an interesting photo into a picture you’ll want to frame as a keepsake, or enter into the Walnut Festival photo contest!
