Oct. 3, 2019 | Thursday Artist Talk: Ron Long, “The Art, Technique, and Challenge of Nature Photography”

Drawing on examples from his long career and worldwide travels, Ron Long illustrates how he has dealt with the challenges of capturing nature ranging from Nudibranchs (or sea slugs) to birds in flight and almost everything in between.

Many of the photographs he will share from his portfolio have not previously been seen. Long will also discuss photographic techniques that any photographer—from amateur to professional—can learn from.
