The Audubon Everglades Photography Club will welcome Barry Heimlich, a noted bird and nature photographer, to its Monday, March 25 meeting at 7 p.m. to present, “Capturing a Subject in Motion: Birding Photography.” The meeting will be held at St. Michael Lutheran Church at 1925 Birkdale Drive in Wellington. All are welcomed and the presentation is free.
Since retiring, Heimlich turned to birding with a vengeance, which led to him taking over the helm of South Florida Audubon as president. In this pursuit, he has chased birds all over the U.S. and currently has an ABA (American Birding Association) life list of 531 birds.
Nine years ago, his love of birding evolved into digital bird photography. Today, his primary interest is in capturing beautiful pictures of birds, especially Florida birds. Heimlich brings a depth and breadth of experience. He will talk about how to capture birds while presenting some of his photographs.
“This is going to be an amazing presentation for our members,” Club President Pete Lekos said. “Since we welcome all levels of photographers, our members can expand their skills by learning the techniques of capturing birds who always seem to be in motion. ”
Founded two years ago by Peter Lekos and Scott Zucker, the club welcomes all skill levels of nature photographers who want to enhance and expand their skills through a variety of programs. There are workshops, field trips, presentations, along with competitions judged by noted photographers. For more info., visit www.photography.auduboneverglades.org.
