Photographer Ed Rotberg will present a program, “Hints and Tips for Making Outstanding Photographs,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at Norton Hall, 70 Cottonwood St. in Woodland.

Rotberg has been an avid photographer since 1972 when he caught the bug from one of his college roommates who also happened to be the regional rep for Pentax in Michigan. Since then, he has always owned and used SLR cameras, starting with the venerable Pentax Spotmatic. Even though other obligations in life have sometimes drawn him away from photography over the years, he has always returned. He made the switch from film to digital in 2003 and sold his darkroom equipment to happily move on to Photoshop.

While he photographs everything from architecture and street scenes to portraits and landscapes, his real passion is photographing wildlife and nature, especially birds. He and his wife have greatly enjoyed combining photography with their travels throughout the United States and to such places as Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Costa Rica, Tanzania and Namibia.

Although photography is not his occupation, he still devotes as much time (and way too much money) to the pursuit of beautiful images. His work has appeared in a few galleries, a number of books and periodicals and was featured on the cover of Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Visitor’s Guide.

Rotberg lives in Nevada City with his wife Margie Determan, also a photographer, and their Weimaraner Bogie.
