Our speaker will be member Neil Jernigan giving a talk on Flash in Nature Photography

Have you ever wanted to use flash photography in nature? Neil will go over everything you need to know to get started – from photographing at night in total darkness to using fill flash. Other topics include controlling your flash manually, shooting with multiple lights and wireless shooting.

Neil Jernigan Bio: My interest in the natural world started when I was a little kid. After growing up hunting & fishing, I was taught to love and respect the world we live in. I traveled with my parents & grandparents all over North Carolina in search of all sorts of animals and new scenery. We always had a camera with us documenting the journey & animals. After saving up, I purchased my first camera when I was fifteen. Photographing everything from birds, mammals to clouds and stars. In 2009 (senior year of high school) I started a portrait & wedding photography business. After photographing over 30 weddings and hundreds of portrait sessions I was ready to get back to what I really loved; wildlife photography. Words can’t describe I how much I love nature & wildlife photography. It gets me out of this fast past world we live in, closer to God and closer to the things I love. With my photographs, I hope to educate & inspire current and future generations to explore, respect and help create an appreciation of our beautiful world. sh Photography with Wildlife”.

Monthly Photo Assignments:

1) “Signs of the Season” Monthly Photo Assignment. Since the purpose of the monthly assignment is to encourage you to get out and shoot, these should be new images, taken since the topic was assigned, rather than images that are in your archives.

2) Brookgreen Gardens Outing. This outing took place April 5-7. Feel free to submit 5 or more of your favorite images. If you had a recent (this season) on-your-own outing to Brookgreen, you may submit photos for this category. Since our group was small, I’ll also take recent images from Huntington Beach State Park if you have any.

3) Five Recent Favorites. While you are encouraged to choose nature-related images, this category does allow entries with “hand of man”.
