About the Speaker
Jim Anno has been interested in the natural world since he was a young boy. He participated in summer programs at the Cincinnati Nature Center in the 1970?s and early 80?s and this is where he got his first exposure to herpetology. Today he still loves being outdoors and enjoys hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, gardening, and photography. He currently keeps several types of reptiles but his true passion is getting out in the field to see what he can find and photograph. Jim joined the GCHS a little over a year ago and is just beginning his term as vice president.
Have you ever taken herp photographs only to be disappointed with the results of your efforts? Or perhaps you have admired a herp photograph and wondered how the photographer got the subject to sit still and cooperate? But you say you don?t know an F-stop from a shutter speed ? not to worry, this presentation is for you. During his presentation at the January meeting Jim plans on sharing some techniques, tips and tricks that will help you take better photos. Over several decades of taking photographs of natural subjects, and taking too many bad photographs to count, he has learned a several methods that help improve your chances of ending up with a decent shot. Rather than focusing on the technical details he will present several general concepts and techniques that will help you end up with better pictures whether you are using a point and shoot camera or a DSLR.
