Please join us for a special presentation brought to you in partnership with Missouri Nature and Environmental Photographers (MONEP) Close-up photography is one of the best ways to get an intimate view of your subjects. However, it can be one of the most challenging types of photography. While macro photography can be highly technical, it also can be as simple as a snap shot. Join us as Noppadol Paothong shares some of the techniques he uses to capture many of his images in the Missouri Conservationist magazines. While Nop has been doing macro and close-up photography extensively for the past 20 years, the past three years have been especially exciting due to recent advances in both camera technology and software. During his presentation he will show his work process, providing a behind the scenes look at how he captured his images. He will share some of his thoughts on how and why he decided to use particular lenses and settings. Noppadol Paothong is a nature and conservation photographer and is an associate fellow with the elite group of photographers from the world, the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP). He is also a staff wildlife photographer with the Missouri Department of Conservation and contributes his images and stories to many of its publications, including Missouri Conservationist, and Xplor. His images also appear regularly in many national publications, such as Audubon, Nature Conservancy, National Wildlife, Ranger Rick and more. For over 20 years, Noppadol has also been documenting rare and endangered species, primarily grassland grouse and their fragile habitat, and has published two large-format national award-winning books, Save the Last Dance (2012) and Sage Grouse, Icon of the West (2017).
