PetsWildlife photography seminar set for April 13 in ManhattanBy The Herald-dNewsMarch 24, 2019CaptionSeiwert's presentation will cover wildlife subjects, including their habitats and behavior, and where to find them. Photography equipment and outdoor gear will be discussed and what is best suited for the subject, the shooting environment and the pocketbook. He will give pointers on how to prepare for an outing and the importance of weather information and terrain and vegetation maps in planning an excursion. Seiwert will stress how good woodsmanship includes respect for the environment and wildlife, proper navigation and personal safety in the field. He will also discuss the importance of proper personal behavior and discipline in terms of clothing, scent, sound and movement. The presentation will include a discussion of post processing raw images taken in the field, such as cropping, image enhancement and format options for exporting the finished images.CaptionSeiwert also enjoys fishing, hunting, crafting, biking, swimming, running and taking his family and friends on outdoor adventures. He is well known in the Cook and DuPage County Forest Preserves and has extensively explored the Midewin Tall Grass Prairie. His photography interests are diverse including, as he says, “everything from fighter planes to bumblebees”. Examples of his work will be on display and he will be available to answer questions following his presentation.CaptionDue to limited seating in the main gallery, two sessions will be offered during the day, each seating about 25 people.
