Jake Mosser will present North East Massachusetts Nature at PSRI on Tuesday, 31 May 2016.
This is a presentation of many of the area’s nature photography hot spots as experienced by Jake in recent years. While it is based on one person’s encounters, it is a guide for what is available to the photographer with patience, persistence and a love of nature. Subjects range from magnificent mammals and spectacular bird life to visually pleasing botany. Along with the more spectacular creatures will be images of the little details of the natural world that are available to the discerning eye. Also included are a few basic tips for the entry level photographer. Many of the example images are successful PSA Nature exhibition works. Local parks along with backyard photography are explored.
