Irene Hinke-Sacilotto will give a talk on wildlife photography at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 9, online via Web-Ex.
The talk, sponsored by the Sparta Camera Club, is based on Sacilotto’s more than 35 plus years of experience photographing wildlife and covers the requirements, strategies, techniques, and equipment required to capture engaging animal images. Included is information on lighting and composition, plus locating, attracting, and approaching wildlife. The presentation includes more than 100 illustrative images.
Sacilotto has shared her photographic experiences and love of nature with thousands of people through more than 300 photo classes, workshops, lectures, and tours in both the U.S. and abroad including Kenya, Iceland, Newfoundland, the Falkland Islands, the Brazilian Pantanal, South Dakota Badlands, Tangier Island, and other locales. Program sponsors have included zoos, nature centers, camera clubs, and conservation organizations such as National Wildlife Federation and the Assateague Island Alliance.
She has written “how to” articles on nature photography for national publications such as Outdoor Photographer and Birding. Credits include the book “Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, an Ecological Treasure.”
