Refuge hosts talk on photographing wildlife in Mass.

PLUM ISLAND — The Photographic Society of Parker River National Wildlife Refuge will meet Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in the visitor center auditorium.

The meeting will cover the wildlife images of photographer Shawn Carey (of Migration Productions). Carey’s program is titled, “Photographing Birds and other Wildlife in Massachusetts: Where, When and How.”

Photographing birds and other wildlife has become increasingly popular over the last 10 years with the vast improvements in digital technology.

For this program, Carey will talk about the equipment needed (camera, computer and software) and tricks of the trade.

The Photographic Society welcomes anyone who has an interest in nature, wildlife or photography. The club meets every month, generally on the second Saturday afternoon. Club activities include special presentations, slideshows, mentoring, training and involvement in the refuge’s various photography-related programs, events, and outreach activities. Preregistration is not required to attend this program.

Please call 978-465-5753 for more information about the Photographic Society.
