Close Up Blitz – Macro Photography Techniques

This class will spend some time in class talking about the Bio Blitz Concept and what it entails. The idea will be to go to a field site that we will map and then set up and photograph things we find on site. Before going out, we will have a demonstration on how to photograph the species that we will be collecting in the field. We will collect specimens, take photos of these species there, and collect blitz data. Back in the lab, we will transfer our data to our iNaturalist account. Vials and nets and other collecting devices to use will be provided. When we come back with our discoveries, Kevin will help you photograph the collections showing the techniques described earlier. We will discuss the habitat we are in and why these species are here as well as information about how each participant can do a Bio-Blitz in their own backyard!

There is going to be a Bio Blitz in Highlands, NC in the early part of June 2016.  It will be organized by the Highlands Biological Station and the Highlands – Cashiers Land Trust. Look at what a Bio Blitz is below.

A.  Wikipedia   A Bio Blitz, also written without capitals bio blitz, is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over a short, usually 24 hour, time. There is a public component to many Bio Blitzes, with the goal of getting the public interested in biodiversity. To encourage more public participation, these Bio Blitzes are often held in urban parks or nature reserves close to cities.

2016 Memphis Bio-Blitz

A BioBlitz is an event centered around one tremendously important concept - BIODIVERSITY. Biodiversity is simply the biological diversity of the natural world that surrounds us. The most basic components of a BioBlitz event are a place, or set of places, and a designated time frame. For the Memphis Wide Urban BioBlitz, the community has chosen 5 places around Memphis. For our time frame, we have chosen the second weekend of April (8th - 9th). See Schedule Below.
