Wild Monterey: Wildlife and Coastal Landscapes-Alyce Bender
May 20 - May 22
During this photo adventure, mornings will start on one of several beaches, getting sandy, and photographing the multitude of shorebirds that utilize this area of the Pacific Flyway. This photo adventure is timed with the seasonal migrations of over 20,000 birds that use this area for stopover feeding and resting during their journey.
On one of the days, we will take a cruise looking for whales, dolphins, and other marine life at sea. We will have about three hours out on the Bay. Most days the stars of the cruise are the humpbacks that are here almost year round. Behaviors we hope to see include lunge feeding, breaching, tail or chin slaps.
Afternoons will be geared towards sea otters, seals, and sea lions. As a group we will discuss what we want to focus on as sunset arrives, wildlife or landscapes, and we will end the day once the light has gone.
During down time between wildlife action and locations, we will discuss topics such as wildlife and seascape shooting techniques, post processing, and any other similar topics you might have questions about.
