Pacific Northwest Migratory Birds

Jan. 14 & 28, 2019 at 6:30 to 8:30 pm

What is that amazing bird? Learn what birds migrate through our area, spend the winter or summer here, and the best places to find them. We’ll cover migrating species, bird photography techniques/tips, and birding resources through in-class discussions, visual presentations, and assignments. You’ll also learn about the best resources for bird identification, photography equipment for the best photograph, and the value of keeping a birding/photography journal.

Are you looking for that special “something” that makes your photos stand out? Then this is the class for you. You’ll learn to develop your photographic vision. We’ll cover in-camera techniques, exposure and the use of light to create a cohesive photographic story. There will be weekly assignments to explore information learned in class with in-class review of pictures.

Salish Sea Bird Photographic Tours

Spring and Fall are great times to see migrating birds along the shore of the Salish Sea (Puget Sound, Desolation Sound, Strait of Juan DeFuca, and the Inside Passage). This session will be exploring the shores of Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, or the Pacific Ocean. We will photograph all the different species of birds found in the area. These areas are stop-over points for migrating birds. It is a quiet time on the shoreline, and we will be taking advantage of the early morning light. Tours are 4 to 6 hours. All the details will be provided upon registration, including location, date, and meet time. Limit 6 per tour, unless otherwise arranged. Cost is per person.




Digital Darkroom

The Digital Darkroom gives photographers the opportunity to correct exposure, color, contrast, and other items in their photographs. In the days of film, these functions were completed for the photographer by their print lab. Modern technology changed this process, and how we work with our images. This class will go into the different software available for processing your photos, techniques to use, what to look for, and how to sort/file/store your photographic images. Lessons/classes are 1.5 to 2 hours.  All the details will be provided upon registration. This can be a private or semi-private lesson. Cost is per person.

  1. Hi Karen, Are you planning another B&W workshop at the Oregon Coast? I can’t make the June 2018 dates but am very interested. Thank you!

    • Hi Michele,
      What dates or time of the year are you thinking about? I will not be offering it again through Sitka Center, but am open to teaching one outside the school.
      Thank you & have a great day. . .Karen
