MY COLUMN IN AUDUBON MAGAZINE'S ONLINE EDITION
I now have a series of articles
in the online edition of Audubon Magazine. They're geared toward
beginners and are very short. If you're a beginner looking for a
quick, non-technical introduction to bird photography techniques,
that's a good place to start.
MY INTERVIEW IN
"POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY" MAGAZINE
The June 2015 issue of Popular
Photography magazine features a short article on bird photography, with
interviews from three bird photographers including myself.
NEW TRIP REPORT
My newest trip report is now live—Magee
Marsh 2013. It includes many photos and photography
tips. This was one of the very best birding trips I've ever
taken, and I'm looking forward to going back again next year (if I can
afford it). If you've never been to Magee Marsh, you should consider
CALIBRATE YOUR MONITOR!
In order to get the most out of
the illustrations in this book—and in order to make sure that
others see your photos the
way you see them on your computer—you need to make sure your monitor
is properly calibrated. The calibration key below provides a
quick way to assess your monitor's calibration. If any of the
gray bars have a red/green/blue color cast, or if any two bars appear
indistinct (particularly bars #1 and #2), then you need to calibrate
your monitor. Section 14.1.2 will tell you how.
The web edition is currently at 16
chapters, comprising 97 sections and 266,588 words,
with 662 illustrations. When printed in 12-point font it
comes to 926 pages. Monthly page views for 2010 are shown
below; these are obviously highly outdated, but the newest numbers
continue the upward trend.
Many readers have asked—and
continue to ask—when a print edition will become
available. Unfortunately, due to the extreme length (900+ pages),
publishing this work as a full-color print edition is simply not
economically feasible. The author is familiar with
self-publishing options such as Lulu and Blurb (which have their own
shortcomings, particularly in cost and printing quality). The
advantage of web publishing over print, however, is that the web
version can be updated and corrected as needed. For that reason,
the author has opted not to produce a print edition.
The author of this book is
currently a full-time PhD student with limited time and resources,
making maintaining of this free web site a challenge. If you find
this resource useful,
please consider making a donation to the author to help defray the cost
of hosting this site. You can now donate via PayPal. See
the "donations" link in the sidebar at

Thanks to everyone who has donated
so far! Your donations are extremely valued, both by me and by
the other readers who benefit from continued access to this site; your
financial support is what keeps this site going. I'm also the
maintainer of MageeMarsh.Org, so your donations help to keep that site
going as well. As a full-time graduate student I wouldn't be able
to afford to run these sites without your help, so THANK YOU!
